CRB contacts: After hitting the headlines twice this week when he realised the new currencies and when his term was extended for another 4 years, Central bank of Kenya(CBK) governor Patrick Njoroge is at it again, this time fighting and protecting the rights of borrowers.

In new regulations a new raft of regulations by  the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK)Loan defaulters will soon be entitled to a 30-day notice from lenders before their names are submitted to credit reference bureaus (CRBs) for listing.

The CBK has published draft CRB regulations 2019 that prohibit banks, microfinance institutions as well as savings and credit co-operative societies (Saccos) from submitting the names of defaulters for listing without their knowledge.

The draft rules require financial institutions intending to report a customer to CRBs to inform him or her by writing or through electronic means and also send another communication informing them about the listing.

“An institution and a third party credit information provider shall notify the customer within one month before a loan becomes non-performing that the institution shall submit to a bureau the information on the loan immediately it becomes non-performing,” read the draft rules.

These regulations, if passed, will entitle every customer to an updated credit score
