As an accredited IDSP, you must be able to provide a digital solution to support the following checks: • Right to Work check to prove compliance and support the Statutory Excuse and be able to check UK & Irish passports and eVisas (through share code applications) – to the same level as that required for a DBS check. • ID check to support compliance and fraud protection, with the capability to use biometric facial recognition match and liveness detection to give additional protection against identity theft and fraud. This should be to the same level as required for a DBS check. • DBS check – to provide one or both of the following options: a) Provide the ID/RTW check to the standard required by DBS for us to request a check through our own provider or b) Provide the ID/RTW check and undertake the DBS check.
