Riemer Reporting Service is the provider of the commercial credit reports, which permits you to obtain reported credit information and data.

The antitrust laws of the United States permit trade associations to establish facilities or services providing for lawful exchange of credit information with other interested parties and members. Decisions to this effect have been upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States. Participants of the credit interchange should be extremely careful to avoid concerted action, which may result in a decision not to sell customers. While the law permits members to exchange credit information participants must adhere to the following.

  • Participants must not engage in any agreement or understanding, expressed or implied:
    1. to fix or determine to whom sales are to be made or credit is to be extended;
    2. to establish joint or uniform prices, discounts, terms, and conditions under which sales are to be made or credit is to be extended;
    3. to concertedly refuse to sell merchandise or extend credit to an account;
    4. to undertake any other activity jointly with respect to any account discussed before the association.
  • No participant may plan, discuss with, or reveal, either explicitly or implicitly, any future actions or policies which might be taken by a participant individually with repect to prices, terms of sale, including credit policies as to late charges, discounts, allowances, or any other activity with respect to an account.
  • No participant may exchange or collect information as to prospective, prices, proposed credit policies and planned terms or conditions of sale.
  • No participant may act in concert or agree with respect to any of the foregoing topics, whether at an official meeting of the association, through on-line corrospondence, or in private meetings before or after offical functions.
  • It shall be the responsibility of each participant and of the Association to prevent and disallow the above activites.
  • Meetings and on-line forums will be conducted in strict accord with the laws governing the exchange of credit information, and it is the responsibility of each participant to be thoroughly familliar and abide by those laws.

Any violation of the above may be a per se violation of the antitrust laws and may expose participating members to criminal as well as civil penalties of the most stringent kind. Such action may even lead to the dissolution of Riemer Reporting Service.
