Lenders have written to ASIC seeking guidance on a number of matters around regulation of lending during the COVID-19 pandemic.

ASIC has responded to provide clarity on issues of hardship, responsible lending and communication.

ASIC encourages lenders to continue to work closely with their customers to develop options that provide both short-term assistance to customers experiencing difficulty due to COVID-19 and also longer-term viability post COVID-19.

These obligations do not apply, and should not be considered by lenders as a barrier to, making appropriate changes to the terms of existing loans in response to hardship situations.
