I utilize a drop off service for customers and use my mobile vehicle to shred the confidential information.
Would this be considered NAID AAA Certified?
As long as the customer stays to witness the destruction being performed, then it could be
considered NAID AAA Certified. However, if the
customer leaves and is unable to witness the
destruction, the service is not considered NAID AAA
Certified and the customer must be notified in writing
Can I use my mobile truck inside to offer NAID AAA Certified Plant-Based Destruction?
Yes. To do so, please submit the form, Provisional Exception Request for the use of Mobile Destruction
Equipment in a Plant-based Operation. The exception
request will be forwarded to the Certification Review
Board for approval. If approved, you will be required to
undergo an audit for this operation.
Do I need 90 days of CCTV recordings to become NAID AAA Certified?
Yes. All criteria must be adhered to in order to be NAID AAA Certified. Therefore, prior to submitting your
certification application, we ask that you have 90 days
of CCTV recordings in place. Failure to have 90 days of
recordings may results in a denial of certification from
the Certification Review Board.
Can the CCTV system be motion censored?
Yes. However we ask that there is enough lighting during non-business hours to recognize the face of the
person in the plant.
Can I hire Temps as Helpers and still be NAID AAA Certified?
Yes. To do so, you must have a letter on file stating that the temp agency is aware that the material is
confidential, they accept fiduciary responsibility
of the material, and that their employees have
had background checks which consist of the same
requirements as NAID AAA Certification.
I am the owner of the business. Do I need to undergo the employee screening requirements?
If you are involved in the day-to-day operations, then you must undergo all the employee screening
requirements. However, if you are not involved in the
day-to-day operations, then you are exempt from the
I- 9 form, drug screening and employment verification.
Where can I find the requirements for NAID AAA Certification?
All criteria needed for NAID AAA Certification can be found in the application on the NAID website at
