PreCheck, Inc., a healthcare exclusive employment and background screening firm, is Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) re-accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®) BSCC.
Houston, TX – May 3, 2018
The National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®) Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) recently announced that PreCheck, Inc. has successfully demonstrated continued compliance with the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) and is recognized as BSCC-Accredited.
Vu T. Do, PreCheck’s Vice President of Compliance who led the company’s reaccreditation effort remarks, “PreCheck is immensely proud to earn our re-accreditation. This valuable industry designation signifies to all whom we serve and will serve that we don’t just talk about quality, compliance, and reliable processes, but that we continually demonstrate those commitments.”
Each year, U.S. employers, organizations and governmental agencies request millions of consumer reports 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, 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 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, 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 www.napbs.com.
