Consumer Credit Reporting Agency Registration

The Department has issued a regulation requiring all consumer credit reporting agencies that reported on 1,000 or more New York consumers in the preceding year to register with the Department on or before September 15, 2018.

The Department is developing an online registration form that will be available in August 2018. The form will require consumer credit reporting agencies to provide information such as the companies’ name, address, executive officers, and certificate of incorporation or similar document, and require companies to disclose information concerning their past conduct.

This page will be updated when online registration is available.

Registration Renewals

Consumer credit reporting agencies will be required to renew their registrations annually beginning in February 2019.
