Banking Executive Accountability Regime

The Banking Executive Accountability Regime (BEAR) was introduced as part of the 2017-2018 Federal Budget and aims to strengthen accountability and competition in the banking system. Expected to be effective from 1 July 2018, the BEAR as proposed will apply to Authorised Deposit-taking Institutions (ADI’s), their subsidiaries and Australian branches of foreign ADI’s. It grants APRA additional enforcement powers while establishing certain requirements of institutions to demonstrate the process through which decisions are made.

Protiviti’s professionals understand what is required to drive this type of organisational change and have the expertise to assist in complying with this new regulation so you can face the future with confidence.


To help you prepare for BEAR, we have developed a toolkit that covers areas your organisation will need to undertake to be compliant.
