Findings & Purpose of the Fair Credit Reporting Act

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (commonly known as the “FCRA”) is codified at 15 U.S.C 1861, et seq. In enacting this legislation, the United States Congress made several findings: (A)  The banking system is dependent upon fair and accurate credit reporting. Inaccurate credit reports directly impair the efficiency of the banking system, and unfair credit reporting methods undermine the public confidence which is essential to the continued functioning of the banking system.
