MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, OHIO – July 17, 2009 — Corporate Screening has achieved Safe Harbor Recertification from the United States Department of Commerce, which signifies that Corporate Screening’s international background screening services are in compliance with the data protection principles set forth by the European Union.
“Our Safe Harbor Recertification means that we can continue to provide our clients with access to background information on European job candidates,” said Dennis Drellishak, President of Corporate Screening. “We are well-positioned to serve our clients in this respect as the demand for international talent has increased.”
The United States Department of Commerce and the European Commission developed the Safe Harbor framework in order to allow for the safe transfer of personal data from European countries to the United States. Safe Harbor bridges the gap between the different approaches to privacy adopted by the European Union and the United States.
