Learn more about Open Banking

An Accredited Data Recipient under the Consumer Data Right is an organisation that has permission to use a consumer’s real data after a rigorous consent process takes place. Businesses need accreditation in order to participate in the new open banking system in Australia. Consumers may only share their data with accredited third-party providers, and organisations can only be accredited by going through the strict accreditation process overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). This ensures all accredited data recipients meet the technical and security standards for the open exchange of consumer data on their platform.

After being accredited, ADRs must pass the conformance test suite (CTS) to receive an ‘active’ status on the Consumer Data Right Public Register. ADRs that are designated as active have have passed technical conformance testing and initial and ongoing consumer data standards, and are ready to go active with live CDR data. ADRs can only receive CDR data and participate in the Open Banking ecosystem when they have been deemed active.

The steps for becoming accredited include applying for an account to access the CDR portal and completing an electronic application form on the portal. Accredited data recipients need to pass CDR Register onboarding requirements that include a level of conformance testing before they can be added to the CDR Register and receive an accreditation number. After being accredited, ADRs must also become active to receive CDR data. As an experienced open banking partner, Envestnet | Yodlee offers our expertise to customers on the road to becoming accredited and active. See the CDR’s steps here.
