Credit bureau operations were started in Barbados in November of 1993, where CCBL is better known as Credi-Check. Prior to 1990 there were no formally recognized credit bureaus in the Caribbean. And consumers in Barbados were denied the right to investigate their credit file and dispute any incorrect entries.
Caribbean Credit Bureau saw the need to address this and developed a plan for its operations within the region. Along with credit reporting, we provide training and consultation services throughout the English-speaking Caribbean.
We also offer value-added credit management services and are advocates for the spread of financial literacy.
Caribbean Credit Bureau Ltd. (CCBL) was incorporated on October 14, 2004 in St. Lucia under the International Companies Act. The Registered Office of CCBL is 10 Colony House, John Compton Highway, Castries, St. Lucia.
The St. Lucia credit bureau was officially opened by Prime Minister, The Honourable Dr. Kenny Anthony in June of 2004. The St. Lucia credit bureau is done as a joint venture with the St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce Industry and Agriculture, which is St. Lucia’s largest private sector representative organization.
The Dominica operations were officially opened by the Acting Prime Minister, The Honourable Ambrose George in July 2005. Our operations have been greatly assisted by the Dominica Cooperatives League, which is the representative body of the credit unions in Dominica.
