Anyone who wants to make a bank loan must obtain a financial report such as CCRIS, which stands for Central Credit Reference Information System.

CCRIS is owned and operated by Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) to facilitate credit risk management among banks.

CCRIS processes data from participating financial institutions and turns them into credit reports.

All your loan records with the bank will come out in a straightforward statement, and the bank will use this CCRIS report to assess your loan eligibility. 

Many people misunderstand CCRIS as a system that blacklists borrowers.

CCRIS only issues reports that the respective financial institutions update to analyze the following:

  • Payment records
  • Total loan amount
  • Application record

Understanding The CCRIS Report

Here are the three main components that can be found through the CCRIS review

  1. Existing loan records – information, type, amount, credit provider, legal action and so on
  2. Accounts under special supervision – unpaid credits placed under the special supervision of a financial institution
  3. Application for credit – the status of the application for the loan made

Through the CCRIS report, you can see your payment records to the bank.

If you often pay on time, before the deadline, your record will be written with the number ‘0’ every month. 

The number ‘0’ indicates that you have never paid late to the bank.

However, if you pay late, your record will be written with the number ‘1’ if one month late, ‘2’ if two months late and so on.
