How it works

High level view of the Kantara Initiative Ltd. Certification process against the UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework (DIATF).
The Kantara Initiative Ltd. Certification Program allows service providers to measure compliance against the DIATF requirements. Organisations completing certification may display the Kantara initiative Ltd. certified logo to demonstrate to relying parties that the service implementation conforms to the DIATF requirements. This certification creates a positive signal to the market and customers that a service is ready to offer Disclosure & Barring Service, Right to Rent and Right to Work identity checks.

Scoping

After accepting the proposal, the applicant self attests if its service conforms to the DIATF requirements, by completing the Statement of Conformity and Service Description. The certification Program Secretariat undertakes the review of the application package

Stage 1 Audit
