2M WorldWatch Plus® Global Sanctions, PEP, Media Searches for Background Screening in Q2; CRA Use In

Background screening companies, also known as consumer reporting agencies (CRAs) increased use of WorldWatch Plus for global sanctions, PEP and adverse media checks in Q2 of 2017 by 55% over the same period last year. WorldWatch Plus suits CRA use by prioritizing search results with multiple subject identifiers.

KENNESAW, GA (PRWEB) AUGUST 15, 2017 - Consumer reporting agencies included WorldWatch Plus global sanctions, PEP and adverse media searches nearly 2 million times in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 55% over the same period last year. The prevailing trend in the background screening industry is the addition of a global search tool onto the well-established national database checks. One industry leader characterized the trend as “national checks in a new pair of jeans.”

The increase in activity represents the growing evolution from county-specific searches to statewide checks, to national databases to global data sources. To meet the specific needs of clients in FCRA-regulated environments, WorldWatch Plus prioritizes results containing multiple identifiers, especially date of birth, that the CRA has searched.
