ASIC has a national program to identify unregistered and unlicensed credit activity. As part of this campaign, ASIC reviewed 5000 advertisements in print, online, and on radio and TV, to identify traders who were advertising that they provided credit, but who were not registered, authorised or licensed to do so.
Its current enforcement focus is on responsible lending in the home loan and payday lending markets, consumer leases for white goods and other domestic goods, and debt reduction and consolidation schemes.
