Senior executives from the major four banks have been named among the members of the advisory committee to the Data Standards Body.

The Data Standards Body will set the technical standards for the Consumer Data Right, which will roll out in the banking sector first with the aim to help consumers and businesses access and transfer data between service providers.

Treasurer Scott Morrison previously announced the appointment of former IBM managing director Andrew Stevens to the position of independent chair to the Data Standards Body.


As chair of the Data Standards Body, Mr Stevens is in charge of appointing the Advisory Committee to the Body.

CSIRO announced in a statement that the names of the “initial members” of the Committee had been revealed, “with a strong focus on the banking sector given it is the first sector to implement the Consumer Data Right”.
