SAN DIEGO — Credit reporting and compliance services provider National Credit Center (NCC) has announced the launch of a new, comprehensive Red Flags compliance solution.

Working from the standpoint that "partial compliance is equivalent to noncompliance," NCC sought to offer a complete program to protect dealerships from the fines, claims, and litigation associated with identity theft. The company's new Red Flags program includes a customizable policy and procedures manual, online staff training, an automated Red Flags detection tool and an authentication site, according to NCC.

The FTC's Red Flags compliance deadline is May 1, 2009. For more information, visit or NCC's Red Flags page.
