The UK Government recently announced a pilot would be launched to allow organisations to digitally check the validity of passports.

This pilot will enable a small number of organisations to access the Document Checking Service, a technical component built and run by the Government Digital Service. This will enable passport details provided by users to be securely checked. No organisations will be given access to government-held data, they will receive a yes or no response on the validity of the passport, and no personal data not already provided by the individual will be used, shared or stored.

The pilot will provide important learning as we seek to support the development of a trusted and secure digital identity and attribute ecosystem in the UK. It could mean significant time savings for individuals who previously went through cumbersome in-person processes to verify their identities and financial savings for organisations who can move their identity proofing processes online.

At this event DCMS will share their draft requirements and pilot application processes with those interested in participating. We would like to hear feedback on our plans for the pilot to ensure our proposals maximise potential participation and learning.
