Justifacts achieved NAPBS accreditation in September of 2014. To become accredited, Justifacts was required to pass a rigorous onsite audit, conducted by an independent auditing firm, of its policies and procedures as they relate to six critical areas: consumer protection, legal compliance, client education, product standards, service standards, and general business practices. Justifacts met and exceeded the requirements in each of these areas.
NAPBS – FCRA Advanced Certification
Members of Justifacts’ Compliance Department have successfully completed the NAPBS FCRA Advanced Certification Program and Testing. Completion of this program demonstrates a commitment to FCRA Compliance within our organization. Individuals must be able to demonstrate proficiency in regards to several FCRA requirements including maximum possible accuracy (section 607b), requirements for reporting adverse information (section 613), and disclosure requirement (section 609).
Privacy Shield Certification
The Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S Department of Commerce and the European Commission and Swiss Administration to provide companies a mechanism to comply with data protection when transferring personal information from the EU and Switzerland to the United States. To join the Privacy Shield Framework, a U.S. based company is required to self-certify to the Department of Commerce and publicly commit to the 23 Privacy Shield Principles which layout use and treatment of personal data received from the EU. Although joining the Privacy Shield is voluntary, the principles are enforceable under U.S.law after a public commitment has been made by an organization.
