If I Take My Documents to be Shredded, How Do I Know They Are Actually Destroyed?

Certified document destruction companies have standards and procedures in place that must be followed in order to be certified by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID).

One of those policies is to provide each customer with a certificate of destruction to all customers who have sensitive information destroyed. 
The certificate contains such information as the client’s name and address, the date, a description of what was destroyed, weight (if available), Integra authorized signature, and customer signature. If a customer is invoiced, the certificate of destruction number will appear on their bill.

Privacy is of the utmost importance to any confidential, certified document destruction service. Employees must meet certain criteria and standards in order to be employed by this type of service. All NAID certified employees of document destruction companies must not only pass a pre-employment drug test, a background check, and a random annual drug screen.

Employees of certified document destruction companies are also trained to not pay any attention to the information contained in the documents they are shredding. Although it would be easy to scan or read information contained in these sensitive papers, they are trained that their main focus is to shred the documents without any regard or concern with the information contained therein.

Professional, certified document destruction companies can be trusted with the most sensitive of documents in order to meet and exceed the standards set forth by the NAID.
