Verification of background
Background verification means verification of source details claimed by a professional registered to establish its accuracy and then reporting on the NSR system versus a profile. This will initiate the credibility and certification to the data registered. For each registered professional NSR maintains status of verification and for different details forming part of every profile. During the registration, the status of every information is “Not Verified”, and after finishing the confirmation procedure the status becomes “Verified”. The result of verification established by the verifying agency is also posted. This accounts for a permanent and credible data which is quickly accessible on a central system.
Request of Verification
EBCs perform the verification of the information at the request of a subscriber company or at the request of the registered professional which has been approved by the such professional to see the profile.
Process of Verification
EBCs access the NSR system online and can see information of such professionals for whom the request of verification has been made. After collecting the fee/document needed for verification from the user requesting for the verification. EBC will perform the verification according to the standard process. The principle of operating is that the data should be verified with the data source for example, original documents for information such as passport number, physical visit to the site for address, company for employment information, and university for qualification.
Results of Verification
After finishing the exercise of verification, EBC inputs the result of verification in a certain format against the profile of the professional. The approved companies and the professional can view the verified profile with results of background check against every individual and information verified by the EBC. Findings are record by EBCS that will shown along with the information registered by the knowledge professional.
- To minimises the mistake, the system enforces a maker-checker discipline for inputting the data.
- If the findings of verification are negative, then EBC has to provide an explanation for this inclusion.
- To ensure that the similar details not required verification repeatedly, NSR system makes permanent record of all the results and the details.
- The comments of verification as inputted by the EBC can be view by the companies approved by the professionals as well as the professionals.
