About Us​

Kantara Initiative Ltd. has been selected by the UK Government as one of the five organisations to certify service providers against the UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework (DIATF), for the Right to WorkRight to Rent and Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) schemes.

Kantara certification is valid immediately upon completion of the required process.

Kantara has provided certification for digital identity frameworks since 2009, which enables it to offer a unique and versatile approach in the field.

We are delighted to be working with Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) and UKAS to ensure that the solutions available to the UK market are reliable, secure, robust, and inclusive and perform consistent digital identity checks.

On 6th April 2022, the UK government made changes to existing legislation to allow employers and landlords to use certified Identity Document Validation Technology (IDVT) service providers. This enables individuals to verify their identity remotely, prove their eligibility to work or rent and apply for DBS checks.

If your organisation would be interested to demonstrate that it is ready to carry out checks for Right to Work, Right to Rent and the DBS through our certification process, please contact our team via: application@kantarainitiative.co.uk
