Overview

Considerable work has gone into setting up Consumer Data Right. The regulators have created the regulatory framework as well as the data standards. Providers have been setting up their systems to meet the high standards demanded by Consumer Data Right. They’ve also been focusing on the technical needs, making sure their websites and apps are ready to go. If you’re a provider interested in offering services under Consumer Data Right or you need to register as a data holder, visit our For providers section.

Consumer Data Right is rolling out across banking first. Next, it will be rolled out across the energy sector.
