Is the Clearinghouse subject to the Privacy Act requirements?

Yes. The Clearinghouse is subject to certain provisions of the Privacy Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. For example, the Agency will verify the driver’s consent to release of information prior to allowing an employer to access the driver’s Clearinghouse record. Drivers have the right to request that inaccurate information in their Clearinghouse record be corrected or removed. In addition, FMCSA will notify employers if previously-released Clearinghouse information has been subsequently corrected or removed.
