CCR Guidance

The CCR Handbook is a suite of information documents and technical manuals. It is recommended that they are read in sequence, starting with the Guidance.

The Guidance should be read in the context of the legal obligations placed on a CIP by the following pieces of legislation.

  • Credit Reporting Act 2013 as amended (the Act);
  • Markets in Financial Instruments Act 2018;
  • Regulations and Orders made under the Act;
  • Data Protection Acts as amended.

The Guidance is provided for information and does not constitute legal or other professional advice. It is the responsibility of all CIPs to ensure compliance with the Act.
