BS7858 Security Screening - Code Of Practice

This British Standard gives recommendations for the security screening of individuals to be employed in an environment where the security and/or safety of people, goods and services, personal data or property is a requirement of the employing organization's operations and/or where such security screening is in the public and/or corporate interest.

Our BS7858 service has achieved NSi Gold status.



How does it work?

After we analyse your requirements and processes, we blend our systems around your operation, taking away the pain.

We provide you with either a paper application form or an online application which are completed and sent to us for processing.

After the checks have been completed, normally between 6-8 weeks, you will be provided with a BS7858 Report with the findings.

The time frames can be greatly reduced if the application form is completed online.

As part of our service, our Clients have access to our online progress service which provides status updates on the progress of each screening file. We can also design the online system with your company's logo's and colours.
