Burbank, CA, June 28, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Frasco, Inc. announces that Noelle K. Harling, Vice President, was named by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners to its inaugural Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) and was elected as Vice Chairperson.
Members of the BSCC are responsible for managing the business and affairs of NAPBS' Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP), which advances professionalism in the employment screening industry through the promotion of best practices, awareness of legal compliance and development of standards that protect consumers. The BSCC will provide regular status reports to NAPBS regarding all credentialing activities, including an annual review of all accreditation standards. The Council will also propose changes in the standards that reflect best practices in consumer reporting, review challenges of alleged non-compliance with standards for accredited Consumer Reporting Agencies and propose appropriate responses, which may include probationary periods and/or sanctions.
"As one of our key goals, the BSCC will oversee the application and selection process for the BSAAP Beta Test, in preparation for full rollout later this year," said Bruce Berger, chairperson of the BSCC. "The Council will work with applicants, staff and NAPBS consultants to select six participant companies that provide a diverse cross-section of the potential applicant pool, including small, medium and large Consumer Reporting Agencies. Feedback resulting from the Beta Test process will help to ensure a successful launch of the full BSAAP by ensuring that the processes and procedures developed to properly administrate the program are fair and functional.
"NAPBS created the BSCC to ensure that firms seeking accreditation meet or exceed a measurable standard of competence in the areas of integrity, security, consumer privacy and legal compliance, which are crucial components to our association's goals to promote, develop, educate and further the professional background screening industry." said Tracy Seabrook, CAE, executive director of NAPBS.
NAPBS is an all-volunteer organization founded in 2003 as a non-profit trade association. NAPBS serves to represent the interest of companies offering employment background screening services. NAPBS gives the employment background screening industry the ability to effectively demonstrate its competence, reliability and willingness to adopt standards. NAPBS is the best means to associate those companies able and willing to conform to standards and to meet the highest expectations of their clients and law-makers.
