What is FACTA?

FACTA (or FACT Act) is the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act, a federal law enacted and designed to reduce the risk of consumer fraud and identity theft created by improper disposal of consumer information.

What you should know about the FACTA Disposal Rule:

It applies to virtually every person and business in the United States.
It requires the destruction of all consumer information before it is discarded.
Potentially severe penalties await violators. http://www.retrievex.com/FACTA

FACTA applies to virtually every person in the United States.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued their FACTA Disposal Rule and while the FTC has singled out Lenders, Insurers, Employers, Landlords, Government Agencies, Mortgage Brokers and Auto Dealers, the FACTA Disposal Rule in fact applies to every individual and business who is subject to their jurisdiction, which includes virtually every person and business in the United States.

FACTA requires the destruction of consumer information before it is discarded.

According to the FTC’s FACTA Disposal Rule “any person who maintains or otherwise possesses consumer information for a business purpose must properly destroy discarded consumer information by taking reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to or use of the information in connection with the disposal.”

Reasonable Measures are defined in FACTA as “burning, pulverizing, or shredding of papers containing consumer information” or entering into “a contract with another party engaged in the business of record destruction to dispose of material specifically identified as consumer information, in a manner consistent with this rule.” Potentially severe penalties await violators.

Secured certified document destruction to discard all consumer information is the best way to comply with FACTA.
