The U.S. Council is comprised of the Advocacy, Educational, Government Relations, and Industry Practices Committees, along with the Provider Advisory Group. The purpose of the U.S. Council is to bring together these well-established committees and advisory groups under one umbrella to represent the United States as a region.
Founded as a non-profit trade association in 2003, the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA) was established to represent the interest of companies offering employment and tenant background screening services. Just as importantly, the members wanted to establish and promote a high level of ethics and performance standards for the screening industry.
The Association currently represents over 880 member companies engaged in employment and tenant background screening across the United States and around the world. Member companies range from Fortune 100 to small local businesses, conducting millions of employment-related and tenant background checks each year as part of the hiring and leasing process. PBSA Member companies are defined as “consumer reporting agencies” pursuant to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and are regulated by the FTC and CFPB.
Thank you, Melissa, for all your hard work within the professional background check industry.
