TrendSource OnSite Inspections is the premier provider of Physical Onsite Inspections for Consumer Reporting, with a hard-earned track record for completing Inspections approved by the three major credit bureaus.
As industry leaders, we wanted to provide people who may be new to the world of consumer reporting, answers to the four most common questions people have about on-site inspections.
What are Physical OnSite Inspections for Credit Bureaus?
Physical OnSite Inspections are exactly what the name says, a physical on-site inspection of a particular location, which documents the existing physical conditions at a business to help our clients assess compliance with Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) regulations.
What are Onsite Inspections for?
Physical Onsite Inspections help our clients verify whether or not a certain business is in compliance with federal regulations for pulling and viewing consumer reports.
Reports from credit bureaus—like Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion—contain sensitive information about a consumer. That sensitive information must be protected from nefarious actors who could potentially use it in identity theft and other types of fraudulent activity.
That’s why the federal government requires certain measures to prevent such fraud, and an OnSite Inspection assists in verifying that these safeguards are in place.
Who needs Onsite Inspections?
Anybody who wants access to consumer reports should go through an OnSite Inspection. If you have questions regarding exemptions and/or other requirements like the passing/failing criteria for OnSite Inspections, we recommend reaching out directly to your bureau rep(s).
