Each year, U.S. employers, organizations and governmental agencies request millions of consumer reports. These reports are to assist with critical business decisions involving background screening. Background screening reports, which are categorized as consumer reports, are currently regulated at both the federal and state level.
Since its inception, NAPBS has maintained that there is a strong need for a singular, cohesive industry standard. And thus, the NAPBS created the BSAAP. Governed by a strict professional standard of specified requirements and measurements, the BSAAP is becoming a widely recognized seal of achievement that brings national recognition to background screening organizations or reporting agencies. This recognition will stand as the industry “seal,” representing a background screening organization’s commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards, and continued institutional improvement.
Our Director of Criminal Records, Andy Yoder, states, “Justifacts is proud to announce that we have been awarded NAPBS accreditation. This accreditation validates our commitment to data security, compliance, service quality, and minimizing workplace risk. ”
The BSCC oversees the application process and is the governing accreditation body that validates the background screening organizations seeking accreditation meet or exceed a measurable standard of competence. To become accredited, consumer reporting agencies must pass a rigorous onsite audit of its policies and procedures as they relate to six critical areas. These include consumer protection, legal compliance, client education, product standards, service standards, and general business practices. Usually, an independent auditing firm handles this difficult audit.
Any U.S.-based employment screening organization is eligible to apply for accreditation. A copy of the standards, the policies and procedures, and measurements are available at www.napbs.com.
