NOTICE TO FURNISHERS OF INFORMATION: OBLIGATIONS OF FURNISHERS UNDER THE FCRA
The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), 15 U.S.C. 1681-1681y, imposes certain duties and obligation on all persons and entities that furnish information to consumer reporting agencies (CRAs). These duties and obligations can be found in Section 623 of the FCRA, 15 U.S.C. 1681s-2. State law may impose additional requirements on furnishers. All furnishers of information to CRAs are recommended to become familiar with the applicable laws and may want to consult with their counsel to ensure that they are in compliance. The text of the FCRA is available at the website of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB): www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore.
Section 623 of the FCRA imposes the following duties and obligations, inter alia, upon furnishers:
Accuracy Guidelines – The FCRA requires furnishers to comply with the federal regulations as to the accuracy of information provided to CRAs.
General Prohibition on Reporting Inaccurate Information – The FCRA prohibits information furnisher from providing information to a CRA that it knows or have reasonable cause to believe is inaccurate. However, the furnisher is not bound by this general rule if it clearly and conspicuously specifies an address to which consumers may write to notify the furnisher that certain information is inaccurate.
Duty to Correct and Update Information – If at any time a person who regularly and in the ordinary course of business furnishes information to one or more CRAs determines that the information provided is incomplete or inaccurate, the furnisher must provide complete and accurate information to the CRA. In addition, the furnisher must notify all CRAs that received the information of any corrections, and must thereafter report only the complete and accurate information.
Duties After Notice of Dispute from Consumer – If a consumer notifies a furnisher, at an address specified by the furnisher for such notices, that specific information is inaccurate, and the information is, in fact, inaccurate, the furnisher must thereafter report the correct information to CRAs.
If a consumer notifies a furnisher that the consumer disputes the completeness or accuracy of any information reported by the furnisher, the furnisher may not subsequently report that information to a CRA without providing notice of the dispute.
Furnishers must comply with federal regulations that identify when an information furnisher must investigate a dispute made directly to the furnisher by a consumer. Under these regulations, furnishers must complete an investigation within a specified time period unless the dispute is frivolous or irrelevant or comes from a “credit repair organization.”
Duties After Notice of Dispute from Consumer Reporting Agency – If a CRA notifies a furnisher that a consumer disputes the completeness or accuracy of information provided by the furnisher, the furnisher has a duty to follow certain procedures. The furnisher must: (a) conduct an investigation and review all relevant information provided by the CRA, including information given to the CRA by the consumer; (b) report the results to the CRA that referred the dispute, and, if the investigation establishes that the information was, in fact, incomplete or inaccurate, report the results to all CRAs to which the furnisher provided the information that compile and maintain files on a nationwide basis; (c) complete the above steps within 30 days from the date the CRA receives the dispute (or 45 days, if the consumer later provides relevant additional information to the CRA); and (d) promptly modify or delete the information, or block its reporting.
Duty to Report Voluntary Closing of Credit Accounts – If a consumer voluntarily closes a credit account, any person who regularly and in the ordinary course of business furnished information to one or more CRAs must report this fact when it provides information to CRAs for the time period in which the account was closed.
Duty to Report Dates of Delinquencies – If a furnisher reports information concerning a delinquent account placed for collection, charged to profit or loss, or subject to any similar action, the furnisher must, within 90 days after reporting the information, provide the CRA with the month and the year of the commencement of the delinquency that immediately preceded the action, so that the agency will know how long to keep the information in the consumer’s file.
Duties of Financial Institutions When Reporting Negative Information – Financial institutions that furnish information to “nationwide” consumer reporting agencies, as defined in Section 603(p), must notify consumers in writing if they may furnish or have furnished negative information to a CRA.
Duties When Furnishing Medical Information – A furnisher whose primary business is providing medical services, products, or devices (and such furnisher’s agents or assignees) is a medical information furnisher for the purposes of the FCRA and must notify all CRAs to which it reports of this fact. This notice will enable CRAs comply with their duties under Section 604(g) when reporting medical information.
Duties When ID Theft Occurs – All furnishers must have in place reasonable procedures to respond to notifications from CRAs that information furnished is the result of identity theft, and to prevent refurnishing the information in the future. A furnisher may not furnish information that a consumer has identified as resulting from identity theft unless the furnisher subsequently knows or is informed by the consumer that the information is correct. If a furnisher learns that it has furnished inaccurate information due to identity theft, it must notify each CRA of the correct information and must thereafter report only complete and accurate information. When any furnisher of information is notified pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 605B that a debt has resulted from identity theft, the furnisher may not sell, transfer, or place for collection the debt except in certain limited circumstances.
