CIC Compliance Assistance Program

What is the program about?

Under the Republic Act No. 9510 or also known as the Credit Information Systems Act (CISA), wherein banks, quasi-banks, their subsidiaries and affiliates, life insurance companies, credit card companies, financing companies, cooperatives and other entities that provide credit facilities, are required to submit credit data (positive and negative) and updates thereon on a regular basis to the Credit Information Corporation (CIC). The institutions mentioned are referred to as “Submitting Entities”. In order to standardize credit data submission, submitting entities should follow a registration process with the CIC.

CIBI Information, Inc. is one of the accredited special accessing entities of the CIC and is certified to train and support submitting entities in complying with CIC data standards. In light with the sustainability of credit information exchange in the country, CIBI is offering its expertise, resources and services to submitting entities that are not familiar with the CIC registration process and to submitting entities that are in need of assistance. We can support and work side by side with submitting entities during the registration process in client data preparation, analysis, interpretation of errors and client data test submission at no cost involved.

The program will run from April to September 2018 only.
