What is the “Background Check Cleared Program”?

The Background Check Cleared program was created by Global Investigative Services, Inc., to assist consumers and/or organizations with identifying that a business owner(s), partner(s) and employee(s) have successfully completed a thorough background check and have passed it based on specific criteria.  Once the business owner(s),partner(s), and employee (s) have satisfactorily completed the background check they are issued the Background Check Cleared Badge.

What types of Background Checks are run?

The following searches are included in the background check process for those living in the United States. Those individuals outside the United States, we offer the BCC Program in limited countries with different types of searches:

☑ Social Security Verification
☑ Address History Trace
☑ County Criminal History Check (Seven year search)
☑ Federal Criminal History Check (Seven year search)
☑ National Criminal History Check
☑ National Sex Offender Search
☑ Global WatchList (OFAC)
