Established in February 2009, ATM Access Australia Limited administers the ATM Access Code developed by the Australian Payments Network Limited (formerly, Australian Payments Clearing Association Limited).
The ATM Access Code facilitates access to the ATM network by:
- providing a convenient and cost-effective means for eligible new entrants to establish Direct Connections and/or Direct Clearing/Settlement Arrangements; and
- prescribing a set of standard ATM Interchange Terms, which use a direct charging model, to govern the exchange of ATM payment messages;
Applications to establish Direct Connections and/or Direct Clearing/Settlement Arrangements with the company's members can be lodged with the Company Secretary
