Currently, the only obligation a credit representative has to cite its credit representative number (and its authorising licensee’s number) is in its credit guide.
Pursuant to section 158 of the Act, the credit representative’s credit guide must specify:
i. the credit representative’s credit representative number; and give information about
ii. if there are 6 or fewer licensees for whom the credit representative is a credit representative—the names of those licensees; and
iii. if there are more than 6 licensees for whom the credit representative is a credit representative—the names of the 6 licensees for whom the credit representative reasonably believes it conducts the most business.
Bear in mind that sub-authorised individual credit representatives will have a different credit representative number to that of the corporate credit representative. Therefore, the credit guide should contain both the corporate credit representative’s number and the individual sub-authorised credit representative’s number.
There is no obligation for credit representatives to cite their credit representative number, or its authorising licensees ACL number, on business cards, letterheads or other marketing material.
