THOUSANDS of banking customers have had their credit histories misreported to the Irish Credit Bureau.

The problems have been identified by the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner in customer credit records at more than one bank.

The ICB is a private company, owned by banks and financial institutions here, which collates customer credit histories.

The audit at the company followed last August's admission by AIB that it had misreported the credit histories of 12,000 of its customers to the ICB due to a systems error.

Permanent TSB is reported to be one of the banks who misreported credit histories which was uncovered in the audit.
