The ABA recommends that the PS GL undergo a second consultation twelve months after the launch of the CDR regime. The ABA recommends that the OAIC institutes a process for annual review (or as CDR documentation is revised) of the PS GL in order to ensure that all cross-references remain up-to-date, complete, relevant and therefore effective.

The ABA supports the inclusion of TPSPs within the CDR regime. TPSPs could play an important role in the efficient and cost-effective provision of services to consumers.

The ABA supports the codification of the expectation that where one regulator possesses information about an obvious and significant breach of laws administered by the other, the regulator should pass that information on. This will ensure early detection of misconduct and swifter enforcement action.
