Background screening, industry specific checks, DBS and HR services from Credence


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

As with all organisations, we are keeping a constant review of the situation.  At present we are operating normally; however, due to restrictions in certain countries, our ability to carry out some checks will be limited.  Your usual contact at Credence will keep you updated on individual screening cases where this is the situation.

For candidates, please refer to our FAQs on this website.  Also, we will continue to respond to queries by email or phone, should you have any questions.


Welcome to CREDENCE: the bespoke background screening company. With easily accessible and assured secure web-based systems, we are in a unique position to fulfil your pre-employment screening requirements in an efficient and cost-effective way.

At Credence we are able to service the unique needs of our clients through the wide-range of background checking, vetting and pre-employment screening services.  This includes criminal record checks from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS checks, formerly known as the Criminal Records Bureau check, or CRB check) and passport MRZ code checks to more industry specific screening services like Department for Transport Airside Pass Checks, BPSS or those industries regulated by the SIA that require checks to the BS7858 standard.

The key to our ongoing success with attracting and retaining clients is that we deliver our comprehensive range of vetting and employee screening services in a flexible and extremely professional manner, while maintaining a productive and collaborative relationship with the businesses and agencies that we work alongside.

We have amassed a worldwide client base since Credence Background Screening was first founded; we have conducted background checks for companies based in Australia, Asia, the USA, the Middle East and Europe. Our expertise in the field is not just global, but also extends across many different business areas; from education to the industrial sector.
