Abstract Driver Records (ADR) requests
Things to know:
- We do not approve all requests. We consider all requests for data based on the following criteria:
- Whether your organization can legally receive the data.
- Your organization’s ability to safeguard Protected Personal Information (PPI).
- If we have the resources to provide the data.
- Washington RCW 46.52.130 governs who can receive ADRs.
- We require a contract when you request PPI and data on a recurring basis.
- A contract is not required if you are requesting a one–time data file that does not include PPI.
- Before submitting the Data Records Contract Application, review the Contract Terms and Conditions.
- We may require your organization to go through regular audits. This is to ensure you follow contract requirements.
- We require an evaluation of your organization’s data security program. We must do the evaluation before providing PPI to ensure you meet our standards.
- After receiving PPI, your organization may be subject to audits. Audit costs will be the responsibility of your organization.
- See Data sharing contract compliance for a full list of those requirements.
