The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) is Australia’s corporate, markets, and financial services regulator. ASIC requires financial services providers to have an effective internal dispute resolution scheme in place and has published the RG271 rules guidance document.
RG 271 explains what Australian financial services (AFS) licensees, unlicensed product issuers, unlicensed secondary sellers, trustees of regulated superannuation funds (other than self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs)), trustees of approved deposit funds, retirement savings account providers, Australian credit licensees (credit licensees) and unlicensed carried over instrument lenders (unlicensed COI lenders) must do to have a dispute resolution system in place that meets ASIC’s requirements.
