Financial Services

The Financial Services Reform Act of 11 March 2002, requires detailed disclosure in relation to financial products (excluding offer of shares and debentures). For further information, call the Australian Securities & Investments Commission on 1300 300 630 or visit www.asic.gov.au.

The Uniform Consumer Credit Code (“UCCC”) regulates the content of many credit arrangements but, more importantly for agencies, regulates what can be said in financial and retail advertising about those credit arrangements. For more details, contact Gawen Rudder for a copy of the Communications Council's Best Practice Guidelines.
