CARCO Group, Inc. Achieves Accreditation from Background Screening Credentialing Council

Supports CARCO’s commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards and continued improvement

HOLTSVILLE, NY (October 13, 2010) — CARCO Group, Inc. (CARCO), a worldwide leader in background screening and investigations, recently achieved accreditation from The National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®). CARCO has successfully proved compliance with the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) and will now be formally recognized as being BSCC Accredited.

The Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) oversees the application process and is the governing accreditation body that ensures the background screening organization seeking accreditation either meets or exceeds a measurable standard of competence. To become accredited, consumer reporting agencies must pass a rigorous onsite audit, conducted by an independent auditing firm, of its policies and procedures as they relate to six critical areas: consumer protection, legal compliance, client education, product standards, service standards, and general business practices. The BSCC determined that CARCO met or exceeded over 50 industry standards.

“We are honored to receive this accreditation. We know this shows our company’s commitment to optimum service in the field of background screening and investigation,” said James Owens, CEO of CARCO.

CARCO conducts over 1,000,000 reports per year in general, financial, and background investigations. Background screening of potential employees is critical for all employers, organizations, and government agencies. Reports of background screening are regulated at federal and state levels. Since 2003, the NAPBS® has represented the interests of companies offering tenant, employment and background screening. With over 700 member companies worldwide, their goal is to set the standard and maintain the highest standards and expectations in the background screening industry. With the recent accreditation, CARCO is now considered a company maintaining these high standards. For more information about CARCO, visit
