FMCSA amends its regulations to allow the use of electronic records and signatures to satisfy FMCSA's regulatory requirements. These amendments permit the use of electronic methods to generate, certify, sign, maintain, or exchange records so long as the documents accurately reflect the required information and can be used for their intended purpose. This rule applies only to those documents that FMCSA's regulations obligate entities or individuals to retain; it does not apply to forms or other documents that must be submitted directly to FMCSA unless there are already procedures in place in the regulations for electronic submission to FMCSA. This rule partially implements the Government Paperwork Elimination Act (GPEA) and the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-SIGN).
Pursuant to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations concerning electronic signatures, the parties consent and agree to the extent practical to conducting business electronically, including, but not limited to, the use of electronic mail, web-portals, electronic signatures and to the use of other practical electronic methods developed from time-to-time.

The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) promotes the accuracy, fairness, and privacy of information in the files of consumer reporting agencies. There are many types of consumer reporting agencies, including credit bureaus and specialty agencies (such as agencies that sell information about check writing histories, medical records, and rental history records). Here is a summary of your major rights under FCRA. For more information, including information about additional rights, go to www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore or write to: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1700 G Street N.W., Washington, DC 20552.
You have the right to know what is in your file. You may request and obtain all the information about you in the files of a consumer reporting agency (your “file disclosure”). You will be required to provide proper identification, which may include your Social Security number. In many cases, the disclosure will be free. You are entitled to a free file disclosure if:
In addition, all consumers are entitled to one free disclosure every 12 months upon request from each nationwide credit bureau and from nationwide specialty consumer reporting agencies. See www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore for additional information.
The following FCRA right applies with respect to nationwide consumer reporting agencies:
CONSUMERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBTAIN A SECURITY FREEZE
You have a right to place a “security freeze” on your credit report, which will prohibit a consumer reporting agency from releasing information in your credit report without your express authorization. The security freeze is designed to prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved in your name without your consent. However, you should be aware that using a security freeze to take control over who gets access to the personal and financial information in your credit report may delay, interfere with, or prohibit the timely approval of any subsequent request or application you make regarding a new loan, credit, mortgage, or any other account involving the extension of credit.
As an alternative to a security freeze, you have the right to place an initial or extended fraud alert on your credit file at no cost. An initial fraud alert is a 1-year alert that is placed on a consumer’s credit file. Upon seeing a fraud alert display on a consumer’s credit file, a business is required to take steps to verify the consumer’s identity before extending new credit. If you are a victim of identity theft, you are entitled to an extended fraud alert, which is a fraud alert lasting 7 years.
A security freeze does not apply to a person or entity, or its affiliates, or collection agencies acting on behalf of the person or entity, with which you have an existing account that requests information in your credit report for the purposes of reviewing or collecting the account. Reviewing the account includes activities related to account maintenance, monitoring, credit line increases, and account upgrades and enhancements.
States may enforce the FCRA, and many states have their own consumer reporting laws. In some cases, you may have more rights under state law. For more information, contact your state or local consumer protection agency or your state Attorney General. For information about your federal rights, contact:

IST Logistics may wish to obtain and use a “consumer report” and/or an “investigative consumer report” from a “consumer reporting agency” when: considering your application for employment/qualification/contract; making a decision whether to offer you employment/a contract; deciding whether to continue your employment/contract (if you are hired/qualified); and making other employment/qualification/contract-related decisions directly affecting you. These terms are defined in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”), a law which applies to you. As an applicant for employment/qualification/contract or an employee/contractor of IST Logistics, you are a “consumer” with rights under the FCRA.
A “consumer reporting agency” is a person or business that, for monetary fees, dues or on a cooperative nonprofit basis, regularly assembles or evaluates consumer credit information or other information on consumers for the purpose of furnishing “consumer reports” to others, such as IST Logistics. A “consumer report” is any written, oral or other communication of any information by a “consumer reporting agency” bearing on a consumer’s credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, motor vehicle record, or mode of living that is used or collected for the purpose of serving as a factor in establishing the consumer’s eligibility for employment/qualification/contract purposes. Additionally, IST Logistics may seek information about your employment/contract history and/or educational background.
If IST Logistics obtains a “consumer report” about you, and if it considers any information in the “consumer report” when making an employment/qualification related decision that directly and adversely affects you, you will be provided a copy of the report, the name, address and telephone number of the reporting agency, and a summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. You also may contact the Consumer Response Center about your rights under the FCRA as a “consumer” with regard to “consumer reports” and “consumer reporting agencies.”
I acknowledge that I have carefully read and understand the DISCLOSURE and hereby consent to and authorize IST Logistics and/or its agents to obtain “consumer reports” and/or “investigative consumer reports” from a “consumer reporting agency” at any time after receipt of this Authorization and at any time throughout my employment or contract term, if applicable. I also authorize IST Logistics to consider the “consumer report” when making decisions regarding my employment/qualification at any time before or during that employment/contract.
I understand I have rights under the FCRA, including the rights discussed in the FCRA Summary of Rights which has been provided to me along with this Disclosure/Authorization form. I understand this Authorization shall remain on file and shall serve as an ongoing Authorization for the Company to obtain consumer reports, investigative consumer reports and criminal background reports at any time during my contract or employment and the qualification process with respect thereto. I acknowledge receiving a written Summary of Rights under the FCRA along with this Disclosure and Authorization form. I understand that upon termination of my contract or employment for any reason this Authorization shall be of no further effect.

In connection with your application for employment with IST Logistics (“Prospective Employer”), Prospective Employer, its employees, agents or contractors may obtain one or more reports regarding your driving, and safety inspection history from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
When the application for employment is submitted in person, if the Prospective Employer uses any information it obtains from FMCSA in a decision to not hire you or to make any other adverse employment decision regarding you, the Prospective Employer will provide you with a copy of the report upon which its decision was based and a written summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act before taking any final adverse action. If any final adverse action is taken against you based upon your driving history or safety report, the Prospective Employer will notify you that the action has been taken and that the action was based in part or in whole on this report.
When the application for employment is submitted by mail, telephone, computer, or other similar means, if the Prospective Employer uses any information it obtains from FMCSA in a decision to not hire you or to make any other adverse employment decision regarding you, the Prospective Employer must provide you within three business days of taking adverse action oral, written or electronic notification that adverse action has been taken based in whole or in part on information obtained from FMCSA; the name, address, and the toll free telephone number of FMCSA; that the FMCSA did not make the decision to take the adverse action and is unable to provide you the specific reasons why the adverse action was taken; and that you may, upon providing proper identification, request a free copy of the report and may dispute with the FMCSA the accuracy or completeness of any information or report. If you request a copy of a driver record from the Prospective Employer who procured the report, then, within 3 business days of receiving your request, together with proper identification, the Prospective Employer must send or provide to you a copy of your report and a summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Neither the Prospective Employer nor the FMCSA contractor supplying the crash and safety information has the capability to correct any safety data that appears to be incorrect. You may challenge the accuracy of the data by submitting a request to https://dataqs.fmcsa.dot.gov. If you challenge crash or inspection information reported by a State, FMCSA cannot change or correct this data. Your request will be forwarded by the DataQs system to the appropriate State for adjudication.
Any crash or inspection in which you were involved will display on your PSP report. Since the PSP report does not report, or assign, or imply fault, it will include all Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) crashes where you were a driver or co-driver and where those crashes were reported to FMCSA, regardless of fault. Similarly, all inspections, with or without violations, appear on the PSP report. State citations associated with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) violations that have been adjudicated by a court of law will also appear, and remain, on a PSP report.
The Prospective Employer cannot obtain background reports from FMCSA without your authorization.
If you agree that the Prospective Employer may obtain such background reports, please read the following and sign below:
I authorize IST Logistics (“Prospective Employer”) to access the FMCSA Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) system to seek information regarding my commercial driving safety record and information regarding my safety inspection history. I understand that I am authorizing the release of safety performance information including crash data from the previous five (5) years and inspection history from the previous three (3) years. I understand and acknowledge that this release of information may assist the Prospective Employer to make a determination regarding my suitability as an employee.
I further understand that neither the Prospective Employer nor the FMCSA contractor supplying the crash and safety information has the capability to correct any safety data that appears to be incorrect. I understand I may challenge the accuracy of the data by submitting a request to https://dataqs.fmcsa.dot.gov. If I challenge crash or inspection information reported by a State, FMCSA cannot change or correct this data. I understand my request will be forwarded by the DataQs system to the appropriate State for adjudication.
I understand that any crash or inspection in which I was involved will display on my PSP report. Since the PSP report does not report, or assign, or imply fault, I acknowledge it will include all CMV crashes where I was a driver or co-driver and where those crashes were reported to FMCSA, regardless of fault. Similarly, I understand all inspections, with or without violations, will appear on my PSP report, and State citations associated with FMCSR violations that have been adjudicated by a court of law will also appear, and remain, on my PSP report.
I have read the above Disclosure Regarding Background Reports provided to me by Prospective Employer and I understand that if I sign this Disclosure and Authorization, Prospective Employer may obtain a report of my crash and inspection history. I hereby authorize Prospective Employer and its employees, authorized agents and/or affiliates to obtain the information authorized above.
Notice: The prospective employment concept referenced in this form contemplates the definition of “employee” contained at 49 CFR 383.5
You understand that information you provide regarding current/previous employers may be used and that these employers will be contacted, for the purpose of investigating your safety performance history information as required by 49 CFR 391.23 (d) and (e). Under 49 CFR 391.23, you have the following due process rights regarding the investigative information that will be provided to IST Logistics:
If you have previous Department of Transportation regulated employment history in the preceding three years and wish to review previous employer-provided investigative information, you must submit a written request to IST Logistics, which may be done at any time, including when applying, or as late as thirty days after being employed/qualified or being notified of denial of employment/qualification. IST Logistics must provide this information to you within five business days of receiving the written request. If IST Logistics has not yet received the requested information from the previous employer(s), then the five business days deadline will begin when IST Logistics receives the requested safety performance history information.
