LADMF - Limited Access Death Master File
On Nov. 28, 2016, a new regulation became effective for individuals and entities seeking or with access to the Limited Access Death Master File (LADMF). The final rule by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Technical Information Service (NTIS) mandates those seeking access must have a legitimate fraud prevention interest or legal, regulatory or fiduciary purpose for access. But more importantly, they must be LADMF certified.
The most significant changes that the new regulation imposes include:
- Annual re-certification
- Third-party conformity attestation every three years
- Agreement to scheduled and unscheduled audits, conducted by NTIS or an Accredited Conformity Assessment Body (ACAB) at the request of NTIS
- Fines up to $250,000 per year for non-compliance

We leverage a harmonized methodology that utilizes accepted security protocols including ISO 27001 and SOC 2 to make certification easier to achieve and maintain.
