What is SCR?The Credit Information System (SCR) is a system managed by Brazilian Central Bank (BACEN) containing information about credit operations (such as loans and financing) and credit limits granted by institutions authorized to operate by BACEN.
SCR is monthly updated by institutions, through the collection of information about matured operations. Therefore, in line with Central Bank Resolution 4571, Nubank provides every month to Central Bank information about your credit operations related to the Credit Card and Loan products.
What is the purpose?Based on evidence found in the SCR, Bacen is able to track financial institutions' credit portfolios, adopting preventive actions towards the management of the existing risks. In addition, the information available in the SCR helps institutions in their credit decisions. Important to highlight that, regardless SCR information on customer's credit operations, the decision to provide credit is exclusive of financial institutions, according to its credit policy.
