BS7858 information

Checkback International – the best for BS7858 checks

We are specialists in all areas of legislated security vetting and already work with many of the UK’s leading recruiters, from the BBC to Barclays, Formula 1 Teams to Facebook and the UK Home Office.

Our Vetting software is 100% online and supports a paperless process with real time client tracking facilities. The software is effectively hardwired with many different inspectorates affording us in many cases, real time vetting processes.

Our Screening teams will take the entire responsibility of ensuring your applicants are processed in a timely and GDPR compliant manner with a critical eye on turnaround times.

How it works

We have two methods of working with our clients;
One off checks
if you choose a one-off check we will send you 2 links;
1. A link to our invoice, from where you can either ‘clicknpay’ with debit/credit card or make an online bank transfer (BACS) where more convenient.
2. A 2nd link to our BS7858 online application form, will then be sent to each applicant once payment is confirmed.

Online account

Where you need ongoing screenings you can open an account at no extra cost.

To use the online service, we will provide you with secure login credentials where you simply enter your candidate’s name and email address and select the required service from our drop-down menu service list.

Your candidate will then recieve an email and clicks on the link to complete their application and we do the rest.

It is that simple.
