Privacy Shield


The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. SJV has been recognized as Privacy Shield Certified since 2016, becoming the first Research Provider in the Background Screening Industry to achieve this certification.



SJV & Associates has been a proud member of the National Associaton of Professional Background Screeners since 2004. The goals of the NAPBS mirror those of SJV, as we also represent the interest of companies offering employment and background screening. Members of SJV are actively involved in the NAPBS, serving on both the Conference Committee as Ambassadors, and also serving on the Provider Committee.



Concerned CRA

Concerned CRAs is a group of companies within the background, pre-employment, and tenant screening industries, who are concerned about the future of the background screening industry. Although SJV & Associates is not a Consumer Reporting Agency, we strongly believe in the practice of not off-shoring sensitive personal information. Concerned CRAs believes that the off-shoring of sensitive personal information and other data practices employed by some companies places the background screening industry at risk.
