    OFT Guidance on Debt Collection

    As part of its regulatory role the OFT issues guidance for debt collectors on how to deal fairly with debtors. It is aimed at all consumer credit licence holders and applicants, and applies to collection of debt once an account is in default.

    The OFT updated its debt collection guidance to ensure that all creditors, as well as debt collection agencies and debt purchase companies, adhere to expected standards of behaviour and competence when dealing with people in arrears or default on their credit accounts. The OFT will be producing revised debt recovery guidance, which they intend to issue for consultation at the end of January 2011. In advance of this, to help inform their thinking about the content of the revised guidance, the OFT is writing to various interested parties about the problem of inaccurate/incomplete data used in debt recovery.

    I'm the forum administrator and I look after the theme & features, our volunteers & users and also look after any complaints or Data Protection queries that pass through the forum or main website. I am extremely busy so if you do contact me or need a reply to a forum post then use the email or PM features offered because I do miss things and get tied up for days at a time!

    Should be out in the next 3 weeks, but even then will only be a 'consultation' document for now.
