BSI ISO/ IEC 27001
BS 7858:2012
BS 102000:2018



BS 7858:2019

There is only one recognised benchmark for performing candidate and employee screening within UK and beyond and that is British Standard BS 7858:2019 “Security screening of individuals employed in a secure environment – Code of Practice”. People are a valuable asset to any business and BS7858 Screening can help you make the right choices when employing staff.

This BSI standard guides an employer through the necessary steps to ensure that potential employees present no known risk to their organisation. This should be done prior to their employment but can be completed within 12 weeks of commencing employment. There are a large number of items to check and some take detailed and experienced understanding. Employee vetting is actually a fairly complex administrative issue to find and collate all of the information needed and analyse these correctly.
