Summary

ATM Access Australia Limited is a company formed, in advance of proposed reforms to the Australian Automated Teller Machine system due to start in March, by the businesses now participating in the system. The company will facilitate the provision of ATM connections and message exchanges (transaction-processing information) under a proposed Access Code. The company is proposing to require that companies seeking to rely on the Access Code and participate in the ATM system:
(i) obtain certain certification services from Australian Payments Clearing Association (APCA) in accordance with an arrangement known as the Consumer Electronic Clearing System (CECS) and (ii) become a member of CECS and, `by implication', a member of APCA also.
On 26 February 2009 the ACCC indicated that it would take no further action at this stage.
