Data Specification template

A Data Specification Template (DST) is a document that spell out standards on how information is submitted and interpreted by the Credit Reference Bureaus. CIS Kenya in collaboration with the stakeholders are the custodians of the DST.

The current DST in circulation is DST Version 3.1.1 which was launched in February 2014. The industry through various interactions thought it best to do amendments to this version to include daily credit information so as to address the new developments in the credit information sharing.
