It is easy to make claims and promises when no one is examining your business. As a NAID Certified Contractor Phoenix has gone beyond claims and promises by submitting to a close examination of every aspect of our security.
While NAID sets the criteria for certification, an impartial, independent security professional conducts the actual audit. Phoenix has attained certification by submitting for critical review our policy and document destruction procedure manuals, employment records, promotional materials, logs and paperwork to verify that they meet the certification requirements. Facility security, monitoring systems, on-site destruction equipment, off-site destruction equipment, and access control systems must also stand up to the auditor’s inspection. To maintain our Certification, Phoenix is audited annually. Click here to learn more about Phoenix's NAID Certification.

- Are materials destroyed in an appropriate time frame?
- Does the destruction equipment reduce the material to an acceptable particle size?
