BackChecked and BRB develop interface to The State Rules Register to help background screeners navigate an evolving compliance landscape
October 24, 2013 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) BackChecked LLC and BRB Publications, Inc. announced today that the BackChecked platform now supports a direct interface to The State Rules Register, an online guide to the state laws that impact a Consumer Reporting Agency (CRA) when conducting background checks for pre-employment and tenant purposes. Administered by BRB, The State Rules Register is authored and maintained by Larry D. Henry, a well-known expert on the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the growing number of similar laws enforced by various states.
According to BackChecked president, John Kloos, the interface with The State Rules Register is a natural extension to the Compliance Documentation that has been part of the company's platform for some time. "When you are examining a court record and you have to make a call on what is reportable in a background check, what's better than immediate access to the pertinent state restrictions that your own staff maintains," mused Kloos. "How about a direct link to a database that you know is kept current by one of the leading FCRA lawyers in the nation?"
BRB president, Mike Sankey, explained that development of the interface took some work on his firm's part but the effort was driven by two realities. "The State Rules Registry is the most popular and fastest growing component of our CRA Help Desk site," Sankey explained. "At the same time, many of our clients utilize the BackChecked system to run their entire business. It made perfect sense to provide them direct access while they're logged into BackChecked."
In addition to the database used by a CRA's staff members, BRB offers a separate product that documents compliance restrictions that apply directly to employers and landlords. BackChecked clients can also provide a link to this information from inside the BackChecked platform, as well, providing an excellent compliance tool directly to their clients.
Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, BackChecked LLC is a leading technology provider serving the background screening profession. The company's technology has incorporated compliance features since its formation in 2002.
