How credit reference agencies use the electoral register

The three main credit reference agencies in the country all buy our electoral registers. These companies are Equifax, Experian and Call Credit.

We also sell our electoral register to Crediva and Aristotle.

They are allowed, by law, to buy the full published version of the register for credit checking purposes.

The four main credit reference agencies get monthly updates from us.

If you notice any inaccuracies on your credit report from any of these agencies, then you need to contact the credit agencies straight away.

If you have any complaints about your name appearing on other websites, you are advised to contact the Information Commissioner. The ICO helpline number is 0303 123 1113, which is open from 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday.
