FCA partners with Australian Franchise Registry

The partnership will provide the FCA with unique access to Frandata industry information and build on recent initiatives to enhance the public perception of franchising.  It will also enable franchise systems to individually and publicly differentiate themselves in the eyes of regulators, financiers, prospective franchisees and the media should they wish to do so.

In the announcement the FCA has endorsed The Australian Franchise Registry ™ and encouraged all FCA franchisor members to complete registration if they have not already done so.

The Australian Franchise Registry (TM), is a voluntary low cost registration platform that enables genuine franchise brands to promote their commitment to compliance and signal the availability of other key stakeholder information. Prospective franchisees, lenders and other key observers of the franchise sector can all search participating brands through the registry’s free publicly accessible search function.
