KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Negara Malaysia has launched its free online platform for the public to access their own central credit reference information system (CCRIS) report, anywhere at their convenience.

Bank Negara said the CCRIS report shows the financing and repayment history of a borrower with participating financial institutions over the past 12 months.
