A listing becomes verified when the listing submitter proves that he is a member of this company. Usually the submitter proves his identity by using the company email during the membership registration process. If not, Fastener Key will demand other evidence of identity.
A verified listing will have a “verified” sign on top of the company listing page, and also a green check icon will appear in front of the company name when the company appears in search results.
An unverified listing will have a “claim this listing” button at the bottom of listing page.
Any Fastener Key member can submit a company for listing, but will only become owner of a listing when identity is authenticated.
