The CBA is a voluntary industry body, representing 9 of the 14 registered credit bureaus within South Africa. This includes Compuscan, Consumer Profile Bureau (CPB), Cred-IT Data Risk Management Solutions, Experian, Inoxico, Lexis Nexis Risk Management Services, Tenant Profile Network (TPN), TransUnion and Xpert Decision Systems (XDS). We operate within the industry as regulated by the National Credit Regulator, in accordance with the National Credit Act and related law.
The CBA is not a credit bureau. It is an industry body and our members are credit bureaus. These are companies that store and maintain information on consumer credit history. Each credit-active consumer will have a profile with a bureau, and credit providers use this information to assess credit applications.
