Industry Certifications

We recognize the importance of committing the resources to meet superior security standards and being a continued source of integrity, trust and dependability. With compliance at the forefront, FSSI invests in rigorous audits that demonstrate our commitment to comprehensive process controls to maintain the highest level of data security and accuracy.

Our certifications serve to assure clients that their confidential customer data is being processed in accordance with the strictest industry standards.

  • SOC 2 Audited – Successful completion of the audit signifies compliance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) attestation standards of the SSAE-18 Type II examinations. Provides clients in regulated industries with the documentable assurance that their confidential customer data is being handled in accordance with strict industry standards.
  • HIPAA Compliant – Includes adherence to the physical, administrative, and technical safeguards as outlined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which entities must uphold to protect the integrity of protected health information. Beneficial for healthcare-related clients, demonstrating that the proper safeguards are in place to ensure the security of protected patient data.

Integrated Production and Mailing Quality Controls

From FSSI to the post office, you can track and monitor your individual mailpieces to ensure timely processing, printing and mailing with the highest level of accuracy and integrity. Working together, these reporting and delivery methods allow compliance teams to monitor and report the disposition of every mailpiece transmitted to FSSI:

  • Unique Piece Tracking (UPT) – FSSI’s proprietary Unique Piece Tracking (UPT) includes a comprehensive process that starts with creating a database to identify each unique mailpiece and setting the expectation of pieces to be processed. Using a 2D barcode in the address block of each document, the UPT data is validated at the time of each envelope scan in the insertion process. This automated validation ensures full reconciliation of each file, including pulls, fixes and special handling, for a complete record of scans and activity.
  • IMb Tracking – The Intelligent Mail barcode (IMb) was created by the USPS and is a 65-bar Postal Service™ barcode that allows mailers to track individual mailpieces, providing greater visibility into the mailstream. By integrating with FSSI’s internal reporting, you can confirm IMb scans, from induction into the USPS postal stream to the post office of destination, providing valuable insight into the status of your mail once it leaves FSSI.
  • Proof of Mailing – Verify that your mail was shipped on a certain date with a “certificate of mailing” or “proof of mailing.” These critical mail options provide evidence that your documents were sent on the expected date and serve as official mailing records. The “certificate of mailing” is provided by FSSI once the mailpiece volumes are verified and placed in USPS trays for delivery to the post office while the “proof of mailing” is provided by a USPS postal clerk when the volumes are confirmed again and mailpieces accepted into the mailstream – with both options tied to UPT and IMb for full tracking.
  • Certified Mail – Certified mail provides the sender with a receipt that the mail was shipped AND that the mail was delivered or a delivery attempt was made. FSSI creates and prints the required labels, inserting them into specially-marked certified envelopes along with your documents. Once the recipient receives and signs for the document via certified mail, the “Return Receipt Signature” is posted online and available for viewing on FSSI’s portal. Comprehensive reports detail the name and address of each recipient, USPS tracking information and final delivery date.
