Is there any test for multicollinearity in a CBC/HB like the Variance Inflation Factor (VIF) for regression


I am trying to calculate a  choice besed conjoint analysis using a Hierarcical Bayes estimation (CBC/HB) model including some covariates. In the Sawtooth manual on page 19 (see link below) I saw that I need to check for multicollinearity of the covariates. But how do I decide if the correlation is too high or not? I know that, for example, for a regression analysis I can test, if the multicollinearity is a problem via the Variance Inflation Factor (VIF). Is there any similar test for the CBC/HB Analysis?

Thanks in advance,
