FAQs - Open Banking

What is Open Banking?

Share

Open Banking lets 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).

What is the Consumer Data Right (CDR)?

Share

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.

What are the benefits of Open Banking?

Share

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.

What am I able to do with Consumer Data Right (CDR) and Open Banking?

Share

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.

Do I have to be involved?

Share

No, participation is completely optional.

What types of data can be shared?

Share

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

How long is data shared?

Share

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.

Is Open Banking secure?

Share

All participating Consumer Data Right (CDR) organisations must be accredited by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) before they are able to request data on your behalf. This accreditation process includes testing to ensure that participating organisations meet certain security standards. As an active data holder, Rabobank must also adhere to these standards.

What is an Accredited Data Recipient?

Share

Accredited Data Recipients (ADRs) are organisations such as banks, product and service providers, budgeting and comparison tools that are accredited to receive clients’ banking data. ADRs are accredited by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) under strict criteria.

How do I know if an organisation is accredited?

Share

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.
