NAPBS member, BSCC certified, BSAAP … sound official don’t they? What do those titles really mean and why are they important?
The National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) is the leading organization promoting ethical practices and compliance in the background screening industry. In order to gain accreditation from the NAPBS, a background screening organization must go through the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP). The Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) is the governing body that manages the BSAAP and reviews ethical practices.
NAPBS accredited companies are held to the highest ethical standards. The first two points of their mission statement focus on ethics and compliance. If you have read our previous blogs, you know that EEOC and FCRA compliance is paramount in today’s screening industry. Lawsuits involving equal opportunity employment and privacy of information are filed every day.
The BSCC reviews industry regulations and adjusts accreditation standards every year. The council monitors the ever-changing landscape of EEOC litigation. Policies are reviewed annually at a minimum to ensure that NAPBS member organizations maintain the highest ethical and compliance standards.
Companies everywhere can claim that compliance is their priority, but how do you know which ones are telling the truth? NAPBS accreditation is the best way to ensure that a background screening company is up to date and following all industry best practices. Employment Screening Services has been an accredited member since 2010, and we are proud to uphold the rigorous standards of the NAPBS.
