BS7858 gives recommendations for vetting of individuals working in a secure environment where the security/safety of people, goods and services, data or property is a requirement of the employing organization’s operations and where such screening is in the public interest.
“Property” includes intellectual and physical property as well as cash and valuables.
Some insurance companies may require BS7858 as a part of the policy terms & conditions and have additional requirements for screening, like a longer screening period.
BS7858 applies equally to all individuals in relevant employment, including full‑time and part-time employees, sole traders, partnerships, temporary and permanent employees, and to all levels of seniority, including company directors and senior office holders.
BS7858 does not cover the other elements of the recruitment and selection process that take place when hiring people. It is assumed that screening would be an additional process added to existing recruitment and selection processes.
The business employing the individual retains ultimate responsibility for an outsourced screening process and is required to review the completed screening file. BS7858 takes a top-down approach, responsibility for this screening process remains with the top management of the organisation. Top management can delegate accountability for certain roles and tasks; however, they remain responsible for this process finally.
