Introduction of Standardised Documentation for Housing Loan Agreements
 
The Associations of Banks in Malaysia (ABM) worked with the Central Bank of Malaysia and its thirteen Council banks to introduce a standardised template for the description of key terms and conditions in respect of certain housing loan or home financing agreements involving a principal sum of RM 500,000 or below. This is to promote consumers' understanding of their rights and obligations and to enable them to make informed decisions. The standardised template has been adopted by all member banks with effect from 1 January 2013. The standardised template can be downloaded from ABM's website at www.abm.org.my.

On 15 January 2013, ABM launched the 2013 e-Banking Fraud Awareness Campaign. Its aim is to create awareness of the general public on current e-banking scams and to help them to avoid becoming victims of cyber crimes.
