Tracing agents are devotees to the art of tracing people and a skilled tracing agent is able to locate even the most elusive of individuals and gone aways. There are many specialist tracing agencies throughout the UK, but when choosing one to work with you should ensure that they meet certain criteria.
Professional tracing agents
There has been a lot of media interest in methods that tracing agents use to locate people; especially in the case of negative tracing (where a tracing agent is trying to locate an absconded debtor).
If you hire the services of professional tracing agents, make sure that methods they use are both ethical and legal. We recommend that you carry out an audit of potential tracing agents, by reviewing their code of conduct, professional memberships (especially Credit Services Association membership if your company is involved in debtor tracing) and above all Data Protection compliance.
The Information Commissioner will prosecute persons who contravene section 55 of the Data Protection Act (DPA), by unlawfully obtaining information.
