This process applies, until further notice via revised guidance, to all registrants, where a face to face meeting is not possible.
During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it replaces the standard registration process and involves a method of establishing the registrant’s identity through the remote provision of:
- identity document
- an image file suitable for use as a passport-compliant photograph
- confirmation that the image is a true likeness of the registrant
This process is to be used by Service Provider Registration Authority (RA) Agents acting on behalf of Registering Organisations whenever they need to register a new member of staff.
It allows for user access to be rescinded and/or users de-registered in a managed way when normal conditions return.
