Who Should Care That We Are NAID AAA Certified?


By knowing that we are NAID certified you can know that the services we provide to you have the highest levels of security and accountability in the information destruction industry.

Potential Customers

If you are considering who you will use for your records management, information destruction or scanning images you want to select a company that has high security measures to protect your vital information and accountability to maintain those high security levels. By having an NAID AAA certification, it give you assurance from a 3rd party that our services are in fact to the security level you require.

Benefits Of The NAID AAA Certification

Security and accountability…these are just a few of the benefits you can expect when you work with a NAID AAA Certified secure shredding company.


NAID AAA certifciation requires us to have a number of security measures in place to keep our certification. Here is just a few of the requirements we maintain to keep our NAID AAA certification status:

    • 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
    • Maintaining written policies and procedures for drivers and assisting employees
    • Requiring employees to wear uniforms and picture ID badges
    • Ensuring all customer materials remain secured and in the control and custody of the NAID member agent until destroyed by shredding equipment
    • Requiring all fleet vehicles meet the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations and have lockable cabs and cargo area
    • Conducting comprehensive third party background checks on all officers of  the company


Part of being NAID AAA certified means that you subject your firm to random audits by the international trade organization NAID. By having these audits occur spontaneous and sporadic it forces a very high level of accountability given at anytime NAID certified companies could be audited and lose their certification if they are not operating at the high level of standards the NAID outlines.

NAID Certification

About The Privacy+ Program

The NAID AAA Certification Program is a voluntary program for companies providing information destruction services. Through the program, NAID members are audited for mobile and/or plant-based operations in paper or printed media, micromedia, computer hard drive destruction, and/or computer hard drive sanitization. Under the program, the certification applies only to individual locations. In order to maintain the certification, companies must pass unscheduled, surprise audits. If a NAID member operates in multiple locations, each location must pass the audit to be certified. To learn more about the program watch this video below.

Blue Pencil also holds a PRISM Privacy+ Certificaiton to certify that our records management and document storage services are confidential and have a higher level of security than the average records management and document storage service alternatives.
