The Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) have reviewed their Lending Code  to ensure that it accurately reflects regulatory changes. The Code aims to give rights to customers who have taken out a consumer credit loan with an FLA member. The updated Code will come into operation from 1 October 2014. One of the key changes relates to the recording of health information, to ensure that the Code better reflects the requirement to obtain explicit consent and explain how the information will be used if recorded. The Code is not yet publicly available but will be accessible on the FLA website on 1 October 2014.
