Verification - Education - Transcripts

HR.01.02.05 EP 3 requires that "The organization verifies and documents that the applicant has the education and experience required by the job responsibilities". Does this mean that organizations are required to obtain transcripts as part of the education verification process?

There is no requirement that organizations obtain transcripts as part of the education verification process. Such a requirement would be an organizational decision.
The FAQ titled "Verification - Education" provides examples of ways organizations may verify education.
