No blacklisting for e-toll judgments

OUTA Welcomes ETC Clarity

Recently ETC was reported as saying that anyone against whom an e-toll default judgment was granted would be blacklisted. However, the Credit Bureau Association (CBA) has made it clear that credit bureaus are not entitled to load judgments related to e-tolls onto consumers’ profiles.

The CBA says that the Transport Laws and Related Matters Amendment Act of 2013, which amended the South African National Roads Agency Limited and National Roads Act of 1998, specifically excludes the levying and collecting of e-tolls from the provisions of the National Credit Act of 2005.

According to the CBA, those who are aware of information relating to an e-tolls judgment on their consumer profiles may contact the following credit bureaus to lodge a dispute and have the information removed.

  • Compuscan

  • Consumer Profile Bureau

  • Experian

  • TransUnion

  • Vericred

  • Xpert Decision Systems

 

The CBA’s statement is  .

OUTA welcomes this clarity from CBA.
