Yes. Even though Chexsystems focuses on providing one's historical checking and savings activities to commercial banks and credit unions, in 1999 the organization was categorized by the government as a credit reporting agency. Accordingly, they are subject to the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

By the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, debt may be reported for seven years from the date of last payment. In the event of default and legal judgment, that increases to ten years from the date of last payment, unless the creditor successfully obtains an extension which can lengthen this another ten years.

No. Lenders don't "have" to report to credit agencies at all. Credit reporting is totally voluntary. There is no law which requires or compels it. The Fair Credit Reporting Act states that IF information is reported, then it must be accurate. But there is no provision that insists on reporting.

Chexsystems is a Credit Reporting Agency (CRA) governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and other laws. Under the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) amendments to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), they are subject to the same rules and regulations.

If someone wishes to view their credit rating, the Fair Credit Reporting Act allows that person to contact any credit reporting agency to obtain a copy, for free, once per year. The three major credit reporting agencies are Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion.

Here is info published by the federal government on the topic: The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), enforced by the Federal Trade Commission, is designed to promote accuracy and ensure the privacy of the information used in consumer credit reports. Recent amendments to the Act expand your rights and place additional requirements on credit reporting agencies (CRAs). Businesses that supply information about you to CRAs and those that use consumer reports also have new responsibilities under the law. Although the FTC can't act as your lawyer in private disputes, information about your experiences and concerns is vital to the enforcement of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
