Other reporting requirements

Central Credit Register

The Central Credit Register is a secure system for collecting personal and credit information on loans of €500 or more. It is operated by the Central Bank of Ireland under the Credit Reporting Act 2013. The Act obliges all lenders in scope to submit personal and credit information on those loans to the Central Credit Register.

If a credit institution is engaged in providing credit of €500 or more, it is likely that they are in scope of the Act and will have reporting obligations.

An applicant must satisfy themselves, however, whether they are in scope and further information is available in our guidance at refer to Chapter 3 for more information on the scope of the Act.

A lender who provide loans that are in scope of the Act, without first being in a position to submit information to the Central Credit Register is not incompliance with the provisions of the Act. Therefore it is recommended that lenders engage as early as possible to prepare for submission of information to the Central Credit Register and enquiry. To register please contact us at
