Digital Identity Trust Framework

The UK DIATF is changing the way digital identity verification is carried out

It is a set of rules designed by DCMS to represent a ‘gold standard’ of digital identity verification. The Digital Identity Trust Framework gives organisations like yours the confidence that checks are conducted to the highest standard, and reassures your candidates that their personal data is being held safely and securely.

From the 1st of October 2022, recruiters and employers will have to start using UK government certified identity service providers (IDSPs) to carry out digital right to work checks, or go back to meeting candidates in person to manually verify their documents.

This guide will help you to:

  • Understand what the Digital Identity Trust Framework is, and its impact on your business
  • Find out what is changing and what isn’t from the 1st of October
  • Avoid penalties of up to £20,000 for not conducting the correct checks or not doing them properly
  • Learn what the benefits are of digital identity checking
  • Adapt your onboarding and implementation processes ahead of the coming changes
