Section 60A: Procedures for accurate reporting of public record information

Section 60A. A consumer reporting agency which compiles and reports items of information on consumers which are matters of public record, for the purpose of furnishing a consumer report, shall:

(a) Maintain reasonable procedures designed to insure that whenever public record information is reported, in a consumer report, it is complete and up to date to the extent practicable. It shall be deemed a reasonable procedure for a consumer reporting agency to accurately report the status of public record information as of the date recorded in its files provided that such information is updated on a regular basis.

(b) When conducting a reinvestigation as required by paragraph (a) of section fifty-eight, a consumer reporting agency shall promptly record and report the current status of the public record.

Nothing contained in this section shall permit the use of public record information otherwise prohibited under section fifty-two.
