Accurate Background Adds International Search to Background Check API

Accurate Background, comprehensive employee screening solution provider, has enhanced its Accurate APITrack this API to include international searches. With the latest version of the API, users can screen employees and candidates across a wide range of international markets. Accurate Background spent a decade constructing a Resource pool of regional and in-country contacts to consolidate data, regulatory expertise, language skills, and cultural familiarity to build a network that users can now leverage directly through the API.

"We continue to make technology enhancements to our API," Alek Zdziarski, Accurate Background Chief Product Officer, mentioned in a press release. "[The announcement] allows our customers to improve the candidate search scope for international searches. Our unmatched network of regional and in-country partners ensures our customers have the best, most secure and accurate data available through the API with the assurance of compliance to local and international laws."

In the press release, the company presented a perfect example of why international background checks present unique challenges and where the Accurate API helps alleviate such challenges. An online retailer needed to expand screening in the UK and automate the process as much as possible. The company was pressed for time in order to get ramped up for peak seasonal hiring. However, criminal checks in the UK follow Disclosure Scotland requirements (a geographic-specific requirement). Accurate Background's sophisticated process streamlined candidate Documentation collection, local representative connection, and result gathering via the API.

Accurate Background offers criminal checks, public records, drug testing, education and employment verifications. In the past year, the company has conducted background checks in 56 countries. That international capability is now delivered via its API. To learn more or request a key, visit the API site
