Title: Where to Get Started on Accreditation

Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2012 

Time: 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM EDT (11:30 AM - 12:30 PM PST)

To Register:


The purpose of the webinar is to share ideas on the accreditation process as well as the advantages of accreditation.


In 2010, the NAPBS – a non-profit trade association representing the background screening industry – launched the BSAAP to promote best practices, awareness of legal compliance, and development of consumer protection standards. The NAPBS Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) ensures that a screening firm seeking accreditation meets or exceeds measurable standards of competence.

To become accredited, background screening firms – also known as Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) – must pass an onsite audit conducted by an independent auditing firm that examines policies and procedures related to the following six critical areas of background screening:

  • 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 NAPBS accreditation. A copy of the standard, the policies and procedures, and measurements of the BSAAP, as well as a list of accredited employment screening firms, is available on the NAPBS website at
