Review of the Positive Credit Reporting law – Deadline Friday 16 December 2016
Privacy Commissioner John Edwards has released a discussion paper inviting submissions on whether positive credit reporting, introduced in New Zealand five years ago, has been a success and whether the law is operating satisfactorily.
The NZ Credit & Finance Institute welcomes comments and feedback from our members and undertakes to collate this feedback into a response that is representative of our membership.
Some specific questions have been asked, including the following:
- What benefits for individuals have resulted from the introduction of more comprehensive credit reporting?
- Do the accountability requirements for credit reporters provide a good basis for the public to have confidence that the credit reporters and their subscribers are acting compliantly?
- Have the credit freezing provisions been useful?
- Has Schedule 5 worked well in operation to improve identity matching while appropriately limiting the use and retention of driver licence information?
- Credit scores: Are the interests of individuals suitably protected?
- And the Privacy Commissioner is seeking direction on how the Code should operate in the future
