PreCheck, Inc. Achieves Background Screening Credentialing Council Accreditation
Date:5/2/2013

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 02, 2013

The National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®) Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) announced earlier this week that PreCheck, Inc. has successfully demonstrated compliance with the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) and will now be formally recognized as BSCC-Accredited. Focused on serving the healthcare industry’s unique background screening needs since 1993, PreCheck has always demonstrated a commitment to client education, consumer protection, and adherence to industry best practices. Earning BSCC accreditation is proof of that long-standing commitment.

Vu Do, PreCheck’s Director of Compliance, spearheaded the company’s accreditation effort and insists, “even though it was a very involved and laborious project requiring the contribution of many individuals across many hours, it was a worthwhile endeavor. Accreditation means we operate at the highest level in our industry. We are extremely proud of our achievement.”

Each year, U.S. employers, organizations, and governmental agencies request millions of background checks, otherwise known as consumer reports, to assist with critical employment decisions. Background screening reports are 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, therefore, 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 (also referred to as Consumer 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.

The BSCC oversees the application process and is the governing accreditation body that validates that 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, 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.

Any U.S.-based employment screening organization is eligible to apply for accreditation. A copy of the standard, the policies and procedures, and measurements is available at http://www.napbs.com.
