Thanks Adrian.

I thought it might be that call.

I would suggest separating the threads around UK DCMS consultation and the EU Digital Principles consultation.  The kinds and content of questions are different and will likely end up in confusion.

>> 4.1 Opportunities to enable the use of digital identities
>> 4.1.0.1 We believe that if digital identity products are overseen by a trusted governance system and built on the solid foundation of authoritative government-held data then then Departments whose business processes are predicated on identity verification (examples of which are discussed in the following paragraphs) will feel confident to update their guidance. We will of course work with those Departments to assist in this.
>> 
>> 4.1.0.2 There are potential opportunities to enable the wider use of digital identities in the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) checks, which do not currently allow for digital checking methods, and within the Home Office Right to Work and Right to Rent Schemes, where their system of checks can be developed to enable the use of digital identities beyond their own internal services.
>> 
>> 4.1.0.3 The Home Office has already implemented digital checks in the Right to Work and Right to Rent Schemes with the introduction of the Home Office online right to work and right to rent checking services. These services allow an individual to prove their right to work or rent digitally, by providing time limited access to the relevant information. This includes the individual’s name and facial image and can therefore be used for identity verification purposes. These services can be used by individuals who have been given access to a digital version of their UK immigration status (an eVisa), or those with a valid Biometric Residence Permit or Card.
>> 
>> 4.1.0.4 The online services work on the basis of the individual first viewing their information which is to be shared. The individual can then share service specific information with the employer or landlord. The service is secure, free to use and enables checks to be carried out remotely via video call as the information is provided in real time directly from Home Office systems.
>> 
>> 4.1.0.5 The Home Office is currently exploring options to allow digital right to work and rent checks for those who are not in scope to use the online checking services, for example British and Irish Nationals. However, the Home Office is clear any adopted technologies must adhere to the security and integrity requirements of the Schemes. The introduction of a governance and trust framework clearly presents opportunities in this area.
>> 
>> 4.1.0.6 In the financial services sector we are working to ensure alignment with influential guidance such as that produced by the Joint Money Laundering Steering Group and the Financial Action Task Force, to increase organisation’s confidence in using digital identity verification methods.
