Avesta Systems is proud to announce that we are now officially accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS).
While our background screeners were previously NAPBS certified as individuals, Avesta is now one of about 100 consumer reporting agencies (CRAs) nationwide that is NAPBS accredited as a company.
So, what does this mean?
According to the NAPBS website:
“Governed by a strict and thorough set of professional standards of specified requirements and measurements, the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) has become a widely recognized seal of approval bringing national recognition to an employment background screening-affiliated organization for its commitment to achieving excellence through high professional standards with accountability that results in continued institutional improvement.”
For our current and prospective clients, this means that they can be assured that all our background screening services meet the “highest level of industry standards”. This includes being compliant with federal regulations, such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act, ensuring the protection and security of all client and consumer information, and adhering to thoroughness and strict ethical standards in our daily business practices.
The specific, six areas of accreditation as defined by the NAPBS are Consumer Protection, Legal Compliance, Client Education, Researcher and Data Product Standards, Verification Service Standards, and General Business Practices.
