Welcome to the 66th monthly newsletter designed to keep BIIA members informed of the significant developments on the policy dossiers being worked on in geographical territories that members operate in.

BIIA would like to thank its fellow industry association, ACCIS, for allowing us to re-use certain information that they have published on regulatory developments within Europe. 


In this months newsletter we cover a wide variety of issues including open data, digitalisation, new technology (AI) and privacy with regulators busy trying to keep pace with the fast changing incresingly digital world we are living in. With the rapid growing interest in ESG we have also introduced this month a section that provides a round up on ESG regulation in Europe, UK and the rest of the world.

Finally we report on the 28th Plenarty meeting of the International Committee on Credit Reporting (ICCR), the standard setting body for credit reporting and business information industries. BIIA has been an active member of the Committee since it was founded and works with the Committee to raise industry issues highlighted by our own research and by members.

Recent publications by the ICCR:

  • Key Principles for Effective Regulation and Supervision of Credit Reporting Service Providers,
  • Cross border credit reporting
