Not All Background Screening Companies Are Created Equal

November 1, 2017
Fewer than 2% of all consumer reporting agencies earn accreditation from the National Association of Professional Background Screeners – a nationally recognized seal of approval distinguishing employment background screening companies for their commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards and ongoing institutional improvement.

To earn accreditation from the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), background screening companies must formally document all of their policies and procedures to ensure that they adhere to best practices concerning regulatory requirements, including strict consumer protections.

In particular, accreditation indicates independent validation that employment verification and screening organizations follow industry-leading standards relative to quality, data security, compliance, organizational performance and professionalism.

Additionally, the NAPBS affords accredited organizations with unprecedented coverage and analyses of legislation potentially impacting the employment screening industry at federal, state and local levels. This ensures that accredited background screening firms are always on top of an ever evolving legal environment at all levels of government and across the jurisdictions in which they provide pre-employment background services.
