FAQs - Open Banking

Open Banking allows you to take control of your banking data and share it securely with accredited organisations. It was introduced by the Australian Government under legislation called the Consumer Data Right (CDR).

The Consumer Data Right (CDR) is Australian Government legislation that gives consumers the right to share their data between service providers.

The CDR is being rolled out progressively. The first industry sector it applies to is the banking sector, with the energy sector to follow next and telecommunications to follow.

Rabobank is registered with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) as a CDR Data Holder.

Open Banking enables you to share your own banking data more easily with accredited organisations. The aim of this is to make it easier to compare products and services, as well as increasing choice and competition in the banking sector.

Open Banking also requires banks to share their existing product reference data in a standardised format. This encourages the development of new applications and services based on that data, such as product comparison tools.

You can find a list of all the accredited organisations on the Australian Government's CDR website here.

If you're eligible, you can share your banking data such as client details, account information, and transaction history with accredited organisations.

You could share your banking data with other organisations for services such as product comparison, tailored product recommendations, finding the best deal on your banking services, budgeting, consolidation of your accounts, and other services.

No, participation is optional.

Eligible clients can consent to share their banking data including:

  • Name and contact details
  • Account information (such as balance, direct debits and scheduled payments)
  • Transaction details

Rabobank also makes available to anyone our standardised Product Data, to facilitate services such as market-wide product comparisons. This is disclosed in machine-readable format via Application Programming Interface (API), and includes:

  • Product name and eligibility criteria
  • Terms and conditions
  • Interest rates
  • Fees or discounts

Individuals, sole traders and joint account holders

To be eligible for data sharing, individuals, sole traders and joint account holders must:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • be the account owner of an eligible individual, sole trader account or joint account, and
  • have at least one account with Rabobank that is open and accessible through Internet Banking

 

In addition, to be eligible to share account information and transaction details from a joint account:

  • all joint account holders need to meet the above criteria; and
  • the joint account must be enabled for data sharing (learn more here)

 

Secondary users associated with individual, sole trader and joint accounts (Farm Business only)

Eligible Farm Business clients who are individuals, sole traders or joint account holders can choose another person (such as an authorised signatory) as a 'secondary user' to manage data sharing on their behalf. To be eligible, this 'secondary user' must:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • have Internet Banking access to the account as a full or delegated user; and
  • not be the account owner.

 

Entities such as partnerships, companies and trusts

Entities such as partnerships, companies and trusts can nominate representatives to manage data sharing on their behalf. To be eligible for data sharing, these entities must have at least one eligible account with Rabobank that is open and accessible through Internet Banking. To be eligible to share data on behalf of these entities, the representatives must:

  • be at least 18 years old; and
  • have Internet Banking access to the account as a full access user.

You can choose which data you want to share and how long you want to share it for (e.g. for 3 months, 6 months, or up to 12 months). Data sharing arrangements will automatically expire once that period has ended. The maximum time period for sharing data is 12 months.

Once your Rabobank banking data has been shared with an accredited organisation, it is no longer managed by us. Please refer to the accredited organisation's Consumer Data Right policy for details on how they manage your data.

A secondary user is a person (such as an authorised signatory) chosen by a Farm Business client (individuals, sole traders and joint accounts only) to manage Open Banking data sharing on their behalf.

You can set up more than one secondary user.

  1. Go to Services & Settings and select Notifications under the Open Banking menu.

These messages mean that your other joint account holder/s want to disable or re-enable your joint account for Open Banking data sharing. To learn about Open Banking, click here.

If the message says that another joint account holder 'has disabled data sharing', this means that the listed joint account has been disabled for data sharing, and none of the account holders will be able to share account and transaction data from that account.

If the message says that another joint account holder 'has requested enabling data sharing', this means that the listed account currently has data sharing disabled and another joint account holder wants it re-enabled. For this to happen, all account holders will need to agree to re-enable it for data sharing. If you agree to data sharing being re-enabled:

  1. In Internet Banking (not available in mobile banking app) go to Services & Settings and select Joint account permissions under the Open Banking menu. Choose the joint account listed in the message you received and press the 'Approve' button.
  2. If there are more than two account holders, they will also need to re-enable the account for data sharing.
  3. If all joint account holders agree, the joint account will be enabled and can be selected from the list of accounts eligible for data sharing.

If you do not agree to data sharing being re-enabled, you can reject the request by:

  • In Internet Banking (not available in mobile banking app) go to Services & Settings and select Joint account permissions under the Open Banking menu. Choose the joint account listed in the message you received and press the 'Deny' button.

You can also simply do nothing. Once it has been disabled, data sharing on the joint account remains disabled until all account holders agree to it being re-enabled.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) maintains a register of all Accredited Data Recipients (ADRs). As part of the process of registering your consent, Rabobank must verify that the ADR is accredited before allowing any data sharing to occur. You can find the list of all the accredited organisations on the Australian Government's Consumer Data Right (CDR) website here.

No. Unfortunately you need to use the browser version of Internet Banking to view and manage your Open Banking data sharing arrangements.

Joint accounts are already enabled for data sharing and you won't need approval from other account holders to set up data sharing arrangements with accredited organisations, unless you or any other account holder chooses to disable your account for data sharing.

If you or any other account holder has disabled your account for data sharing, all account holders will need to agree to re-enable it.

To request data sharing be re-enabled:

  1. In Internet Banking (not available in mobile banking app) go to Services & Settings and select Joint account permissions under the Open Banking menu. Choose the joint account you want to share data from and press the 'Enable data sharing' button.
  2. We'll send your other joint account holder/s a message asking them to agree to or reject your request. We'll also send a reminder message if they don't respond within five days.
  3. If they agree, your joint account will be re-enabled.

Once data sharing has been re-enabled, the account will be able to be selected from the list of accounts eligible for data sharing. Also, sharing of account and transaction data in any previously paused data sharing arrangement/s will resume.

If the other joint account holder/s reject the request or if they don't respond within 10 days, data sharing will remain disabled.
