The Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA®) Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) announced that Chane Solutions has once again successfully demonstrated exceptional compliance methodologies with the Background Screening Organization Accreditation Program (BSOAP) and is recognized as BSCC-Accredited.
Mike Wiley, CEO of Chane Solutions, says, "We are very proud to receive PBSA re-accreditation as it recognizes Chane Solutions' dedication and commitment to serving our clients with the highest quality and compliance standards. This re-accreditation affirms our belief that our first priority is to stay vigilant to an ever-changing landscape, focus on strict compliance and conduct proper due diligence during the hiring process."
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, categorized as consumer reports, are currently regulated at the federal and state levels.
Since its inception, PBSA has maintained that there is a strong need for a singular, cohesive industry standard and, therefore, created the BSOAP. Governed by a strict professional standard of specified requirements and measurements, the BSOAP is becoming a widely recognized seal of achievement 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 BSCC oversees the application process and is the governing accreditation body that validates the background screening organizations seeking accreditation to meet or exceed a measurable standard of competence. 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 six critical areas: 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 accreditation. A copy of the standard, the policies and procedures, and measurements are available at www.thepbsa.org.
