Financial Institutions Act No. 2 (consumer protection-related)
(enacted in 2004)
Financial Institutions Act No. 2 of 2004 (consumer protection-related) regulates banks, under the supervision of the Central Bank of Uganda. The act strictly protects the confidentiality of customer information, allows customers access to their credit information, limits dissemination of information to government-regulated financial institutions, and imposes financial penalties on credit reference bureaus that do not adopt measures to prevent the wrongful use and management of information. The Central Bank of Uganda officially launched its Credit Reference Bureau in December 2008.
