Disposal of Background Screening Reports

All background screening and credit report information must be properly disposed of, according to FACTA (the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act) of 2003. Proper disposal means that any paper records must be shredded or otherwise destroyed so that the information cannot be reconstructed. It also means that if any such information was kept as computer files, those computers must be erased before being sold, donated, or disposed of.
