What is BS 7858: 2006+A2:2009?

BS 7858 is an important security standard that helps employers to screen security personnel before they employ them. Giving best-practice recommendations, BS 7858 sets the standard for the security screening of staff in an environment where the safety of people, goods or property is essential. This includes data security, sensitive and service contracts and confidential records. You can also apply BS 7858 in situations where security screening is in the public’s interest.

How does it work?

BS 7858 sets out all the necessary requirements to conduct a successful security screening process. This standard covers ancillary staff, acquisitions and transfers, and the security conditions of contractors and subcontractors. It also looks at information relating to the Rehabilitation of Offenders and Data Protection Acts. 

What is new?

BS 7858:2006+A2:2009 replaces BS 7858:2006+A1:2007 which is now withdrawn.
