Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS)

The Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) check is a government standard for the pre-employment screening of civil servants, members of the armed forces, temporary staff and government contractors. It is also used by many companies as a benchmark for their screening standards.

The BPSS check includes:

Right to Work Check

3 Year Employment References

Additionally, we would need to give a reasonable account of any significant periods (6 months or more in the past 3 years) of time spent abroad. If a period of education falls within the 3 year period, a reference from the educational establishment will be obtained. For periods of self-employment, evidence is obtained confirming that the individual’s business was properly conducted and was terminated satisfactorily.
