Tip of the Week: Why was my ‘My ARC’ account deleted?

My ARC accounts with access to ARC tools containing sensitive data (including Accreditation, Agent's Choice, Document Ordering System, Document Retrieval Service, IAR and Memo Manager) are automatically deleted after 150 days of no activity for your data protection.

Payment card industry (PCI) security standards require that each user access their account and change their password every 90 days when they have access to sensitive data. A My ARC account with access to sensitive data and no login attempts will go through the following statuses before it is automatically deleted. A reminder email is sent to users before each status change.

  • 90 days (inactive status) – Access is locked.

  • 120 days (suspended status) – Access is locked and suspended.

  • 150 days (deleted status) – The account is automatically deleted.

If you do not have access to any ARC tools that contain sensitive data, your My ARC password will never expire, and your account will never be automatically deleted. However, it is strongly recommended that all My ARC users log in at least once a month to maintain an active account status.

If you are unable to access your My ARC account for any reason, you may attempt to reset your password by selectingReset a Forgotten Password on My ARC.

If your account has been suspended or deleted, please contact your administrator to restore access. If you do not know who the administrator is, please selectFind Your Administrator in My ARC.
