Section 380-K Compliance procedures

General Business (GBS)

Every consumer or reporting agency shall maintain reasonable procedures designed to avoid violations of sections three hundred eighty-b, three hundred eighty-j and three hundred eighty-t of this article and to limit the furnishing of consumer reports to the purposes listed under said section three hundred eighty-b. These procedures shall require all prospective users of the information to identify themselves, certify the purposes for which the information is sought, and certify that the information will be used for no other purpose. Every consumer reporting agency shall make a reasonable effort to verify the identity of a new prospective user and the uses certified by such prospective user prior to furnishing such user a consumer report. No consumer reporting agency may furnish a consumer report to any person if it has reasonable grounds for believing that the consumer report will not be used for a purpose listed in section three hundred eighty-b of this article.
