RG 183 Approval of financial services sector codes of conduct
Issued 1 March 2013
This guide is for:
- applicants seeking ASIC approval of a financial services sector code (code) under s1101A of the Corporations Act 2001 (Corporations Act);
- persons who are responsible for preparing, maintaining and ensuring compliance with these codes (code owners); and
- financial advisers who enter into ongoing fee arrangements with retail clients and seek an alternative to complying with s962K of the Corporations Act by subscribing to a code approved by ASIC under s962CA for this purpose.
It gives guidance on our approach to approving codes, including how to obtain and retain approval.
