Amiqus becomes one of the first ten government-approved Identity Service Providers in the UK

Amiqus, the UK’s most trusted compliance and onboarding platform, has achieved certification as part of the UK governments Digital Identity & Attributes Trust Framework (UKDIATF) as an identity service provider (IDSP) for DBS criminal record checks and right to work across the UK. 

As a certified provider, employers and recruiters can confidently carry out  fully digital right to work processes and criminal record checks via the Amiqus platform with the reassurance that all updated requirements set out by the UK government are met.

The new rigorous standards in place which are externally audited on an annual basis, provide a gold standard of assurance within a typically complex and fragmented marketplace of suppliers and tech to navigate for recruiters, employers and regulated organisations.

Callum Murray, CEO of Amiqus, said:

Over the last few years we’ve proven our ability to digitally support the needs of government, NHS, regulators and regulated organisations across sectors at scale to support their pre employment screening and compliance onboarding.”

“Now, as a certified IDSP to the UK government national trust framework as well as aligning with the DBS and Right to Work schemes, we’re offering an accredited end to end approach to our clients covering all aspects of identity orchestration, verification, criminal record checking and digital back office management. The result is a fast, simple and secure digital process for both candidates and internal teams.”

Amiqus delivering trust at scale 

As part of Amiqus providing digital identity checking in compliance with the new government standard, we have introduced some exciting features to help our clients. 

1. NFC Biometric Passport check

Advanced verification of identity documents through the Amiqus mobile app (available on Apple App Store and Google Play Store). It reduces fraud & identity theft risk by reading and validating data directly from an e-Passport chip with absolute accuracy.

2. Facial Similarity Photo check

Facial recognition technology will biometrically compare a live selfie of an individual against the image in their ID document for facial similarity. It will also record any discrepancies and attempts to trick the system, adding an extra layer of security. Thus, entirely removing the need to meet candidates or clients face to face.

Amiqus is trusted by hundreds of organisations across sectors including the Scottish Government, NHS Business Service Authority and many others. Amiqus is proven to generate significant cost-savings by reducing the time taken to complete the pre-employment process by up to 80%.
