The news means consumers can be sure 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 these types of website every year. And we're proud to be able to say that this year, like the six 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 and the monitoring and auditing of energy price comparison websites like bonkers.ie.
Every year the CRU audits bonkers.ie to ensure the information we show to everyone is accurate, up-to-date, impartial and meets the standards set out in the CRU’s code of practice.
We were the first energy price comparison service in Ireland to be awarded accreditation by the CRU back in March 2012. Our accreditation has been renewed every year since, and we’re proud to display the CRU’s accreditation on our site.
Being accredited by the CRU means you can trust the information we show you and that we meet the CRU’s standards.
Commenting on today's announcement, Group CEO David Kerr said: “We’re delighted that the CRU has confirmed our accreditation again in 2019. We take this accreditation extremely seriously because it means consumers can be confident that the calculations provided by bonkers.ie have undergone rigorous testing to ensure that they are accurate, meaning customers can trust the results they see. This is important at all times, especially in times when prices have gone up and down, which they have done in the year since our accreditation was last awarded."
