What is NAID AAA Certification?

NAID Certification provides our customers peace of mind as they know their confidential information is always handled securely from pickup to recycling.

In order to maintain the certification, Blue-Pencil must pass unscheduled, surprise audits in order to ensure they are always in compliance. NAID AAA certification requires us to have several security measures in place to keep our certification.

  • We perform background checks on potential employees, including criminal, credit, pre-employment, and reference checks
  • Conducting background investigations prior to hiring employees
  • Conducting county-by-county criminal record searches where the employee has resided for the previous seven (7) years
  • Requiring new employees to sign confidentiality agreements
  • Requiring drivers to meet all applicable licensing requirements
  • Drug screening conducted at the time of hiring and at random
