The Banking Executive Accountability Regime (BEAR) legislation passed the Australian Senate on 7 February 2018, and will come into effect on 1 July 2018. The legislation amends the Banking Act 1959 to impose accountability, remuneration, key personnel and notification obligations on authorised deposit-taking institutions. It is intended to make senior bankers more accountable for management decisions, and includes criminal liability amongst its sanctions.
