Consumer Data Right (CDR) and Open Banking

What is Consumer Data Right?

The Consumer Data Right (CDR) gives consumers greater control over their own data, including the ability to securely share data with a trusted third party.

The ACCC is responsible for implementing the CDR system and It will be introduced in the banking sector from July 2020 and will then roll out across other sectors of the economy, including energy and telecommunications.

The CDR aims to help you monitor your finances, utilities and other services, and compare and switch between different offerings more easily. The system also aims to encourage innovation and competition between service providers, helping you to access products and services that better suit your specific needs.
