Certain regulated industries require screening for terrorist activity and terrorist related financing activity in addition to the standard pre-employment background checks. These regulations are designed to prevent terrorism and maintain security by only employing individuals who have not been flagged as a participant in any adverse or terrorism-related activities.
BackCheck’s Public Safety Verification accesses a comprehensive database of individuals and groups that are recognised threats and can be requested in order to comply with industry regulations. By screening candidates against a database containing over 400 different sources, BackCheck is able to discover individuals who have been identified as being involved in or having links to terrorism, money laundering or other serious organised crimes.
The table below indicates some of the sources checked as part of the Public Safety Verification. Please note that this list is not exhaustive.
