Facilitating Economic Growth
The Association has two primary purposes; firstly to facilitate economic growth through the promotion and protection of statutory publicly available data used by the Credit Reference Agencies. This information is essential because it helps to reduce the risk inherent in business transactions; deters fraud; and facilitates the granting of credit.
Secondly to facilitate communication between the Agencies and the business community to create greater awareness of the data held; how this data is used; and how it benefits business decisions and responsible lending.
