Review of Card System Access Regimes: A Consultation Document – May 2013 6. Next Steps

The Bank expects to form a clearer view on the approach to the access regimes following consultation. This process will necessarily involve additional consultation with APRA given the related nature of the regulatory regimes in this area. Should the Bank decide to vary the access regimes, a further consultation on the proposed wording of the regimes will be required.

Formal written submissions regarding the general issues outlined above should be provided by no later than Monday, 8 July 2013, and should be sent to:

Head of Payments Policy Department
Reserve Bank of Australia
GPO Box 3947
Sydney NSW 2001


Submissions provided by email should be in a separate document, in Word or equivalent format. Submissions in PDF format must be accompanied by a version in an accessible format such as .rtf or .doc.

In the normal course of events, submissions will be posted on the Reserve Bank's website and those making submissions will be provided with an opportunity to discuss their submission with the Bank.
