Identity check suits every screening profile and covers verification requirement

The ID check is the most frequently performed check within Validata’s screening profiles. We help employers implement their obligation to verify without a doubt the person’s identity.  By using the latest technology, not only the identity document of a (potential) employee is verified, but person identification can also take place digitally. This way, as an organisation, you can be sure that the identity document, such as a passport, ID card or residence permit, is correct and that it also matches the person who has it checked at that moment. Thanks to this latest technology Validata can help  comply with the legal obligation to verify the person’s identity.  Validata checks the identity on both national and international level.

The identity document verification quickly taken care of by Validata

The (potential) employee is asked to take a picture of the passport, ID card or residence permit via a secured QR code in Valluga, Validata’s screening application. Through a secure connection, the identity document is immediately checked for authenticity features by Mitek, our regular partner for ID verification.

In addition to the verification of the identity document, the person identification can also take place immediately. This digital face recognition takes place directly via the smartphone in combination with the verification of the identity document. The big advantage for both employer and candidate is that this can take place remotely.

Finally, Validata also offers an archive aimed at preserving various documents, including the identity document. Validata thus offers employers the possibility of fully digitised compliance with both the duty to verify and the retention obligation.

Citizen Service Number (BSN) identity document

As an employer, you need to establish the identity of your employees and store a copy of the ID. Validata uses the ID check to help you verify the passport, ID card, driving license or residence permit. Because of possible controls, the ID proof must be clearly legible, including document number, passport photo and BSN. The processing and verification of all these documents are safe with Validata.




ID check according to GDPR guidelines

To best comply with current privacy laws and regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), at Validata the photo of the passport, ID card or residence permit is removed from Validata’s systems within 14 days of completing the ID check, unless your organisation used the archive function.
