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.
