Umbrella organisations listed on the government website looking to carry out remote identity verification as part of Basic, Standard and Enhanced DBS checks must now legally use a certified Identity Service Provider (IDSP).   

OneID® is the only government certified IDSP to support DBS checks that does not require passport scanning, making a completely digital user experience. 

Please note, OneID® is an Identity Service Provider, not a DBS check provider.

have to say

"I was a bit unsure what it would look like because I have never used OneID before, but that was totally fine. It is really quick and easy and convenient. I didn't have to bother with passport scans."


"This feels a lot simpler than all of the other methods I've used before. With other solutions, I had to send in a photo of my passport and someone had to manually check it, so it took time and effort."


"It seemed very quick, very efficient I would say. I think this is a good system to verify your age. There is no uploading of your ID or anything like that. It was very fast and I like that it uses bank-verified data."
