Asia Pacific (APAC)
As an emerging market, Asia Pacific (APAC) has proven one of the most popular areas for investment, outsourcing, and contingent workforces in recent years. Due to increased pressure from Western influences such as from US and European privacy authorities many countries in Asia have either enacted privacy regimes or are in the process of enacting legislation that further regulates how personal information is managed. The checks available in APAC will vary by jurisdiction and according to local consumer reporting, human rights, privacy, and employment contexts as applicable. Detailed country by country packages are available upon request.
North & South America
Our background screening program in the Americas focuses on identifying compliant screening methods in Canada and Latin America. We adhere to the Fair Credit Reporting Act when dealing with customer screening programs based in the United States.
Europe, Africa, & The Middle East (EMEA)
Employers involved in the recruitment and selection of candidates throughout Europe should be aware of their responsibilities under relevant Data Protection Directives (privacy), the legal transfer of personal information into and out of the EU and local employment regulations and customs. The EU and Middle East are two of the most highly regulated regions in the world when it comes to individual privacy. ISS will be your strategic partner helping you to navigate through these issues with detailed country by country screening packages, multilingual forms and customer support for the region.
