The UK Government security standard for screening of people who may have access to government assets
Our platform allows you to order a package of checks to screen towards the BPSS standard. This can be ordered, as and when needed, without opening an account, paying a joining fee or committing to a lengthy contract.
Baseline Personnel Security Standard and supporting guidance describe the mandatory pre-employment vetting controls required for screening of civil servants, members of the armed forces, temporary staff, and government contractors.
BPSS - Now widely adopted by private sector
Today this ‘baseline’ standard is the most often used background screening standard not only for the public sector organisations, but also in the private sector companies, especially for roles where people have access to sensitive information, or access to other important company assets. Screening results will enable organisations to make an informed decision on employing an individual meeting BPSS Standard. The standard is set to help organisations address and prevent the problems of identity fraud, illegal working and malicious criminal activity. BPSS is also a requirement before companies can apply for any National Security Vetting (NSV) levels.
What happens after you place an order?
Once you have provided the contact details for your staff, we will email them and ask them to visit our secure portal to complete a quick form providing the necessary information to start the checks. The following details are required:
