The news means consumers can be assured that the information they see on bonkers.ie is accurate, impartial and up-to-date.

Knowing you can trust the results you see on price comparison websites is important, which is why the CRU audits us every year. And we're proud to be able to say that this year, like the eight years before, we've passed our annual audit with flying colours!

Who are the CRU?

The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) is Ireland’s independent energy and water regulator. The CRU has a wide range of functions including consumer protection as well as the monitoring and auditing of energy price comparison websites like bonkers.ie.

CRU accreditation

Every year the CRU rigorously audits bonkers.ie to ensure the information we display for energy comparisons is accurate, up-to-date, impartial and meets the high standards set out in the CRU’s code of practice. 

We were the first energy price comparison service in Ireland to be awarded an accreditation by the CRU back in March 2012 and our accreditation has been renewed every year since! 

Being accredited by the CRU means you can trust the information we show you and that we meet the CRU’s strict standards.

What's more, the CRU recommends that you should only ever use an accredited site to switch energy supplier, so by using bonkers.ie to switch and save you're following best advice!

At bonkers.ie, the accuracy of the information that we show on our website is paramount. We work hard to maintain our accreditation with the CRU each year and I’m delighted that we’ve passed once more with flying colours.

Energy prices have increased rapidly over the past year and we’ve seen record numbers of people coming to our site to seek out better value. Those people can feel confident that the information we’re showing them is accurate and impartial and I’m delighted that bonkers.ie is able to play such an important role in helping households in Ireland reduce their cost of living.
