The Importance of the FCRA

The Importance of the FCRA

Congress passed the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) into federal law in 1970.  The law was designed around the idea that we need to protect personal and confidential information for all US citizens.

This system helps monitor the collection and use of personal information with certain restrictions on how a person’s information is collected and utilized in the future. Many people believe this law only affects purchase or credit history, but it also impacts information in a criminal background history report.

A criminal history report may contain personal information like your Social Security number, birth date, your past and present residence, driving and motor vehicle records, as well as criminal background information. While many of these records are retrieved from a variety of agencies, an FCRA compliant Background Check Company can only access this information with the applicant’s written consent. Also in many states, there are regulations stating that a business must supply the results of a background check to the individual.
