Applycheck handles all of the compliance for you. When a report identifies a “Hit”, our Professional FCRA Certified Screeners will review each report to ensure the records are those of the actual candidate you are screening and reportable by Federal law.
To order full credit reports, all credit bureaus require that you have a site inspection. It’s a simple process that usually lasts under 15 minutes. First, Applycheck will order the site inspection. Then, a contracted site inspector will visit you at a convenient time in your office. They’ll verify that you are working in a secure environment that does not allow public access to your computer. Once the inspection is complete, the inspection agency will notify Applycheck. Upon passing the inspection, Applycheck will give you immediate access to credit reports!
You can order the Basic Package which provides lots of information on your candidate but does not include a credit report. We have designed this package for the individual owner since it does not necessitate a site inspection.
