Because the regulatory environment around background checks isn’t always easy, we serve our clients with a solid commitment to compliance. Atlantic is a member in good standing of the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA), which certifies our processors for compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). All of Atlantic’s background reports are prepared and delivered within the FCRA guidelines, and other state and local laws where applicable.
Our online invitation not only securely obtains the candidate’s personal information, but also automates county, city, state, and federal disclosures that align with where an applicant resides and works. The forms then upload to the individual’s file, so you can keep them for your own records.
Multiple processors in Atlantic’s in-house trained team hold FCRA Basic certificates as well as PBSA Provider certificates. Atlantic makes every strive to guarantee the most compliant background screening reports, along with the utmost accuracy.
As a member of ISNetworld, Atlantic has taken the steps to meet internal and governmental compliance requirements. You can rest assured that we monitor such obligations to make certain we are operating with best practices.
Atlantic’s screening portal is compliant with SOC 2 Type 2. Information security is incredibly important to our team, and our cybersecurity is up-to-standards, as well as regularly tested and updated when necessary.

Every client has full capability to send pre-adverse and adverse action letters (in both English and Spanish!). These letters will also include a copy of a candidate’s background and their Summary of Rights. And of course, they’re free to utilize.
