Federal Destruction Regulations

We follow all Federal Destruction Regulations.



At Professional Shredding, we provide confidential shredding services that not only meet, but surpass all federal and government compliance standards. No matter what your industry your business is in, once your documents have been shredded, we will provide you with a Certificate of Destruction to verify that your information has been destroyed beyond recognition.

Whether you're a law firm, medical facility, financial organization, educational institution, residential location, or any type of small/medium business, having a certificate of destruction ensures the final step in the shredding process for full compliancy with privacy laws such as HIPAA, FACTA and GLBA.

Some of the things that we do to ensure that the document shredding services that we provide fulfill all federal destruction regulations include:

  • Cross-cutting shredding equipment

  • Locked storage boxes and containers

  • NAID Certification

  • Certificate of destruction

  • Secure chain of custody

  • Protocols for managing waste

  • Certified security professionals

  • GPS equipment vehicles for transportation


Our paper shredding services will save you time and money, reduce your risk of identity theft or fraud and ensure that you are compliant with all state and federal regulations for the disposal of sensitive and private information.

What is the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act?



The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA) are regulations for protecting personal information and privacy. As of June 1, 2005, this federal rule requires businesses and individuals to take appropriate measures to dispose of sensitive information derived from consumer reports. Any business or individual who uses a consumer report for a business purpose is subject to the requirements of the Disposal Rule, which calls for the proper disposal of information in consumer reports and records to protect against "unauthorized access to or use of the information."

The Rule applies to people and both large and small organizations that use consumer reports, including: consumer reporting companies; lenders; insurers; employers; landlords; government agencies; mortgage brokers, car dealers; attorneys; private investigators; debt collectors; individuals who pull consumer reports on prospective home employees, such as nannies or contractors; and entities that maintain information in consumer reports as part of their role as a service provider to other organizations covered by the Rule.

What is the Red Flags Rule?



As of June 1 2010 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) implemented the “Red Flags Rule.” A “Red Flag” is a pattern, practice or specific activity that indicates the possible existence of identity theft. The Rule requires U.S. financial institutions and creditors with covered accounts (creditors include organizations such as finance companies, automobile dealers, mortgage brokers, utility companies and telecommunications companies) to have a standardized program that detects, prevents and mitigates identity theft. Organizations covered by the rule must have policies in place to comply with the new standards to avoid costly fines, regulatory enforcement actions and to avoid the risk of security breaches.

What is the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act?



The Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLBA) Act seeks to protect consumer financial privacy. Its provisions limit when a "financial institution" may disclose a consumer's "nonpublic personal information" to nonaffiliated third parties. The law covers a broad range of financial institutions, including many companies not traditionally considered to be financial institutions because they engage in certain "financial activities."

In order to be compliant with FACTA, the FTC Red Flags Rules and GLBA, all businesses, organizations, creditors and institutions that deal with client personal data and records follow strict destruction procedures that ensure the confidentiality and privacy of that information.

When you choose our Professional Shredding services, you can be 100% confident that you are compliant and your client's information is safely protected.
