Client testimonials

The Referencing Agency has been utilising GBG KYP's service since its launch and has found the service extremely efficient and user friendly. It has given us (and our customers) a high level of confidence that Identity and Right to work checks are being carried out over and above the levels needed for compliance with current legislation. Furthermore, we process high volumes of criminal record checks with GBG and have found that both the turnaround times and the number of errors by applicants has reduced dramatically. Customer support has also been extremely efficient and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending these services.
