The article discusses the variations of credit reports around the globe and the attempt by credit agencies to standardize it. The reason for non-standardization of international credit report is that company law varies from country-to-country. And this leads to different corporate structures and varying legal processes that any one export credit manager will find hard to handle. Standardization efforts are being made through technological advances in Internet technology.
