IntelliCorp Achieves Background Screening Credentialing Council Reaccreditation

BEACHWOOD, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®)
Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) announced today that
Intellicorp Records, Inc., a Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK) business,
has successfully demonstrated continued compliance with the Background
Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) and is recognized as

“Retaining the NAPBS accreditation is an affirmation of IntelliCorp’s
dedication to the industry and the clients we serve,” said Todd R.
Carpenter, IntelliCorp president. “It means that our background
screening best practices, high standards for data integrity, and
commitment to excellence adhere to strict measures and operational
guidelines. This mark of distinction is a testament to all our employees
and their commitment to delivering best-in-class services, solutions,
and processes to our clients.”

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, the NAPBS has maintained that there is a strong
need for a singular, cohesive industry standard and, therefore, created
the BSAAP. Governed by a strict professional standard of specified
requirements and measurements, the BSAAP 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 that the background screening
organizations seeking accreditation meet or exceed a measurable standard
of competence. To become accredited, consumer reporting agencies must
pass a rigorous on-site 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 is available at
