I have just read the Australian Banker's Institute Draft Standard for
Internet Banking


http://www.bankers.asn.au/ABA/html/webdraft42.htm

although a code of practice I think it would be found to be at least
supporting material in a case of accessibility.

It is in my opinion qite a fair review of web accessibility.

Among other things it specificly includes reference to the W3c guidelines.
