Privacy Commissioner to limit credit charges

Related

The Privacy Commissioner is moving to limit what credit reporters can charge people wanting immediate access to their own credit information.

It's been prompted by Veda Advantage charging customers $51.95 for urgent requests.

Commissioner John Edwards says that amount substantially exceeds what is reasonable to charge.

He says it's a breach of the Credit Reporting Privacy Code, constitutes a barrier to exercising fundamental access rights, and damages public trust in the industry.

Mr Edwards is proposing a limit of $10 and has started a submission process.
