CSI Africa Launches All-in-One Background Screening Service

11 August 2014


Pretoria, Gauteng – August 11th, 2014 – CSI Africa, in conjunction with Fides and iFacts, has launched myScreening – the online central verification system that lets HR personnel and other registered users conduct a variety of background checks using a single online interface.

myScreening, an online central verification system, provides a single interface from which a large list of background checks can be conducted by registered users. Some of the background checks available in myScreening include:

  • Identity checks
  • Criminal record checks
  • Credit checks
  • CIPC and directors verification
  • Driver’s licence verification
  • CV verification
  • Deeds

Background-checking and verification services have been available in South Africa for years, but involves a significant amount of red tape. Varying turnaround times and different result formats make it difficult to consolidate records for convenient access. Many organisations therefore find it hard to conduct efficient pre-employment screening programs to combat workplace crime which often includes internal theft and fraud.

The myScreening online central verification system boasts a direct connection to the Department of Home Affairs, and Afiswitch which interfaces with the South African Police Service (SAPS) Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) to determine the criminal background status of a person.

Because of these direct connections, some results are available immediately.   Other screening results, such as criminal record checks and CV verification, are available in as little as 48 hours. All screening results are delivered in a convenient easy-to-read format to a registered user’s inbox, and also stored in the secure myScreening vault for convenient future access.


The pricing is competitive and done on an invoice basis. Rates are per background check or verification.

Signing up

myScreening registration is free. To use the system the South African Police Service (SAPS) has mandated that registered users complete own identity verification within the myScreening interface. New users will also have to submit their own fingerprints. After verification, SAPS-mandated training is required before the myScreening system can be used.
