Free registration required

Executive Summary

At the request of the Minister for Climate and Energy, Paul Magnette, who is also responsible for Consumer Affairs, the NBB's Microeconomic Analysis Service conducted an investigation into the link between payment arrears for mobile telephony and arrears on loan repayments. In this inquiry, which was carried out using data drawn from the Preventel records and from the Central Individual Credit Register (CICR), the profile of people with arrears for both types of debt was also analyzed. The profile analysis shows that defaulters with a Preventel registration form a specific group among CICR defaulters.
