THE BACKGROUND SCREENING AGENCY ACCREDITATION PROGRAM
SIX AREAS OF ACCREDITATION
AUDITS AND EXPIRATION
To become accredited, consumer reporting agencies must pass a rigorous onsite audit, conducted by an independent auditing firm, of its policies and procedures as they relate to the six critical areas.
After three years, a surveillance audit is conducted to ensure accredited consumer reporting agencies are maintaining their commitment to deliver the highest level of industry standards.
Accreditation lasts for a period of five years, after which time firms are required to recomplete the process if they wish to remain accredited.
