Who We Are
Registry Trust was established in 1985 as a UK not for profit, to maintain the register of Judgments, Orders and Fines for England & Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, ROI, IOM and Jersey. This data is intrinsic to responsible lending and informed business decisions in the UK. Over the past 35 years, we have developed products and services which feed into our core mission of 'Public Data for Public Good'. Our data has become vital to the credit information industry. In 2019 alone we processed over 1.6 million records, and our data was used in over 224 million business decisions. Our intention is to use and share this data for public good to promote responsible lending and borrowing, good business decisions, inform public discussion on the economy and household finances, and empower consumers.
Promoting transparency and accountability. We work with consumers, charities and credit reference agencies to deliver an exceptional public service. We believe in transparency in public and corporate life and we work to encourage the development of better behaviours by public bodies and corporations, helping citizens to hold public bodies and corporations to account.
Promoting commerce and trade. Judgment data is one of the most important factors in determining the health of the economy – we provide insight and analysis that is able to support good economic and financial decision making. We want to ensure businesses are making better decisions that support responsible lending and borrowing.
Informing policy and guiding decisions. Our data is used to guide and inform debate about and promote understanding of major public policy issues relating to the economy and household finances. We work with regulators, Think Tanks and Government bodies to ensure that regulations and policy are created with the right information at hand.
