Code of Practice on P2P Marketing Calls
Last updated: 16 April 2020

Code of Practice (CoP) on Person-to-Person Marketing Calls
This CoP is issued jointly by HKAB and the DTC Association and endorsed by the Office of the Telecommunications Authority.  It aims to promote good banking practices by setting out the minimum standards that authorized institutions (AIs) should comply when making person-to-person telephone calls for marketing activities.  Although the CoP is issued on a voluntary basis, all (AIs) are expected to comply with the CoP.

Authenticate Marketing Calls from Banks 
To further strengthen customer protection, the 20 major retail banks engaging in telemarketing activities have agreed that their telemarketers will now provide the called person with his specific identity information, such as his staff ID, direct line or phone extension in addition to the current requirements.  The public can then call the bank’s hotline below to verify the identity of the caller.
