In 2003 the company name changed from ITC to TransUnion. The reason for this name change in South Africa was to bring together and more clearly identify our company with the 25 other TransUnion companies globally.
ITC Credit Bureau or the Information Trust Corporation no longer trades as ITC Credit Bureau but as TransUnion Credit Bureau. In 1901 Dunn and Bradstreet started the first credit bureau in South Africa and sometime later was sold and the name was changed to ITC.
As the leading credit bureau for many years ITC Credit Bureau dominated the industry and a credit check even became known as an ITC check.
