Our accreditations – We guarantee to meet the standard.

Let’s talk about accreditations!

Many other companies will state that they are ‘compliant’, but most are not fully accredited, or will claim to be fully accredited when in actual reality this is not true. And before it’s found out that they are not compliant it’s too late, costing time, money and the work needing to be repeated by an actual accredited company…You’d be surprised how often we pick up this sort of work ☹

The way we value accreditations at CBS truly sets us apart from other suppliers. We can guarantee to meet the standard your business needs, as an accredited organisation,  allowing you to avoid any unnecessary costs and wasting time.

An example of why our accreditations matter;

Recently a company got in touch with us as they needed BS7858. They were previously using a supplier who wasn’t accredited by the National Security Inspectorate, meaning their BS7858 checks were not meeting the standard so the checks had to be done again. This cost time and money, plus frustration and disappointment for our client.

When others say they have business continuity procedures in place, are they tried and tested? Here at CBS, our systems are accredited by UKAS to ISO22301 for business continuity & contingency planning. So using CBS for any of your screening needs means that you are in safe hands.

We think it is important for that people understand that the difference between saying you are compliant, versus demonstrating it. We go above and beyond to make sure that our processes and systems are robust and safe for all customers.

We hold a number of accreditations to prove our reliability. Our award-winning company is accredited by:

  • The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) for British Standard employment Screening
  • UKAS accredited systems to ISO 27001 & 22301 for Data Management and Business Continuity & Contingency.
  • Cyber Essential Plus.
  • Outsourced IT structure to Secura Hosting (part of Node4) who have the following certifications – ISO 27001, ISO 9001, ISO 20000, ISO 27017.
  • Fully compliant with GDPR
  • Independently audited by The DPO Ltd


Are you looking for screening that meets the gold standard? We want our customers to know that they are in safe hands, and we are an industry leading DBS check and pre-employment screening company who understands the importance of getting the job done to the best standards, this is why we want to shout out about our accreditations.
