The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 is a federal law that allows consumers to request and obtain a free credit report once every twelve months from each of the three nationwide consumer credit reporting companies. More pertinent to the information destruction industry, FACTA also contains provisions to help reduce identity theft, including the requirement of the secure disposal of consumer information.
This is where AccuShred can help. By securely destroying your clients’ sensitive information, AccuShred helps you maintain compliance with the FACTA law.
