PCI was designed by the card associations.  It does not have anything to do with the bank routing numbers.  For security on these in the United States, check out www.nacha.org

PCI Compliance is relevant for the security of payment cards that bear one of the 5 supporting card scheme's logos - Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Discover, JCB.
As the bank account number and sort-code does appear on payment cards bearing these logos (mine does!) then if your storing this in conjunction with the PAN (12-16 digit number that also appears on the card), then you would be required to be PCI Compliant.
Regardless, you would still need to abide by common data protection law and at least have some security controls in place. PCI could be a suitable standard to address this.
