Public Safety Verifications

In North America, certain regulated industries require screening for terrorist activity and terrorist related financing activity to supplement 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 terrorism-related activities.

Many clients use the Public Safety Verification to comply with industry regulations. By combining US, Canadian and International government lists, BackCheck identifies individuals and groups that have been identified as being involved in or as having links to terrorism.
