Backgrounds Online Achieves Accreditation From The Professional Background Screening Association

Backgrounds Online - - a prominent provider of background checks and screening solutions successfully demonstrated continued compliance with the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) and was re-accredited by the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA).

The PBSA, formerly the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), created the BSAAP to develop a strong, cohesive industry standard for Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs). Governed by strict requirements and measurements, the BSAAP is a “gold standard” seal of achievement that brings national recognition to accredited members. Accreditation demonstrates a CRA’s strong commitment to excellence, accountability, professionalism and continuous institutional improvement.

Backgrounds Online has been a member of the PBSA for many years. We were among the first to go through their recently strengthened accreditation process. To remain accredited, Backgrounds Online had to meet or exceed policies established by the BSAAP in six keys areas:

  • Consumer Protection

  • Legal Compliance

  • Client Education

  • Product Standards

  • Verification Standards

  • General Business Practices FULL RELEASE
