RG 209 Credit licensing: Responsible lending conduct
Issued 9 December 2019
This is a guide for credit licensees and credit applicants.
It sets out ASIC’s views on what the responsible lending obligations in Ch 3 of the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009 (National Credit Act) require, and steps you can take to minimise the risk of non-compliance with these obligations.
Note: On 25 September 2020, the Government announced proposed reforms to the responsible lending obligations contained in Chapter 3 of the National Credit Act. The proposed reforms will amend the obligations that apply before entry into a credit product or the provision of credit assistance. ASIC’s guidance relating to the current responsible lending obligations will be reviewed and updated when the proposed reforms are finalised.
