Change of SFECH RITS Code

In line with SFECH beginning operation of an Exchange Settlement Account, the RITS (Reserve Bank Information and Transfer System) code of SFECH will change.

The change is as follows:

Old Code

New Code



Most Members will be unaffected by this change, as the only transactions that occur via RITS are the lodgement of Commonwealth Government Securities as collateral (see Circular 57/99 for more information).

For further information or clarification on the above issue, please contact Paul Williamson at SFECH on (02) 9256 0139 or by e-mail to
