At Tracepoint, compliance is more than abiding by the federal and state screening laws. It's about how we collect, handle, maintain and secure the information from our clients. Here are some of the industry governing organizations, acts and laws with which Tracepoint, LLC complies:
Department of Transportation Requirements
The DOT was established by Congress in 1966. Its mission: to assure a fast, safe, efficient, accessible and convenient transportation system.
Department of Transportation Drug Testing
The Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 requires drug and alcohol testing of safety-sensitive transportation employees in aviation, trucking, railroads, mass transit, pipelines and other transportation industries. DOT publishes rules on who must conduct drug and alcohol tests, how to conduct those tests and what procedures to use when testing. The regulations cover all transportation employers, safety-sensitive transportation employees and service agents.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
The law governs consumer reports and consumer reporting agencies. It protects individuals by stressing the accuracy, fairness and privacy of information in the files of the consumer reporting agency.
Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act
The act helps prevent identity theft and improves the resolution of consumer disputes, accuracy of consumer records and use of and access to credit information.
Federal Trade Commission
The FTC works to ensure that the nation's markets are vigorous, efficient and free of restrictions harmful to consumers. The agency enforces federal consumer protection laws that prevent fraud, deception and unfair business practices. It also enforces federal antitrust laws that prohibit anticompetitive mergers and other business practices that restrict competition and harm consumers. Whether combating telemarketing fraud, Internet scams or price-fixing schemes, the FTC's primary mission is to protect consumers.
