NAPBS® Accreditation

Home / Our Difference / NAPBS® Accreditation

BackTrack is pleased to announce that we have received accreditation for our background check services from the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®).

We are proud to have earned this distinction of accreditation status.

This accreditation validates our industry-leading standards in data security, consumer protection, legal compliance, integrity and professionalism.

Accreditation validates your trust in BackTrack as an industry leader. It is an important seal of approval that all companies should look for when choosing a background screening provider.

Each year, U.S. employers, organizations and governmental agencies request millions of consumer reports to assist with critical business decisions involving background screening. Background screening reports, which are categorized as consumer reports are currently regulated at both the federal and state level. Since its inception, NAPBS® has believed that there is a strong need for a singular cohesive industry standard and therefore created the BSAAP. Governed by a strict professional standard composed of requirements and measurements, the BSAAP is positioned to become a widely recognized seal of approval that brings national recognition to background screening organizations (also referred to as Consumer Reporting Agencies). This recognition will stand as the industry “seal” representing a background screening organization’s commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards and continued institutional improvement.

“The BSAAP is the industry’s primary vehicle for quality assurance, self-regulation and public accountability,” said Tracy Seabrook, CAE, executive director of NAPBS. “Developed and sustained by background screening professionals, the BSAAP reflects, reinforces, and promotes best practices, institutional ethics, and the highest standards of background screening operations.”

Any U.S.-based employment screening organization is eligible to apply for accreditation. A copy of the standard, the policies and procedures, and measurements is available at www.napbs.com.
