Experian receives FCA authorisation

1st March 2017

Experian has announced that it has achieved full Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) authorisation

Charles Butterworth, Managing Director at Experian said ” The process has allowed Experian to stress-test our risk management structures and the plans we have in place to ensure fair outcomes for our customers. We have always looked to implement effective resolutions for people, to dispute what they identify as errors in their credit reports, through a responsive and fast system. It is an evolving and dynamic system and we have made many changes and improvements over the years. So we naturally welcomed the opportunity to discuss new proposals for enhancing and improving what we were already doing.

“Experian has always led the way in setting new benchmarks for best-practice, when it comes to both our operating standards and approach to data stewardship. As such, the authorisation from the FCA is important – and we are proud to have received the nod. This is another key milestone and we will continue to strive for the very highest standards of integrity, ensuring that we always focus on doing what’s right for our customers.”
