SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Aug. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- Our APF Criminal Back Ground search is FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) based. The information that we obtain is derived from credit repositories such as TransUnion, Equifax and Experian. The APF (All Personal Files) is consumer based and compliments certain aspects of the NCIC (National Crime Information Center) Criminal Back Ground search for companies and or individuals that need to meet regulatory compliance standards as set forth by the United States Department of Transportation’s USC (United States Code) Title 49.

U.S. Criminal Records Agencies APF search “compliments” the NCIC search. There are thousands of jurisdictions in the United States. All jurisdictions report and respond differently as per legal rule sets and interpretations as set forth by Federal, State, County and City laws pertaining to criminal and consumer back ground searches. It is quite common on our end to see significantly different search results when both the APF and NCIC criminal back ground searches are performed on the same individual.

We also utilize our APF search for individuals that posses the TWIC Card (Transportation Worker Identification Credential). TWIC Cards are issued by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) and are renewable every five years. A TWIC Card holder will lose their license if they are convicted of crimes that are listed below. Because TSA does not update information on an individual TWIC Card holder for five years we strongly recommend to our clients that they run our APF search on an annual basis to determine if they or their employees are in compliance but also to discover if there are open criminal cases. A lot can happen in the course of a year!

Here are the areas that our APF search looks for as well as NCIC’s back ground:

(B) the results of that investigation establish that, in the 10-year period ending on the date of the investigation, the individual was convicted (or found not guilty by reason of insanity) of—

(ix) unlawful possession, sale, distribution, or manufacture of an explosive or weapon;
