Why do DDC use Experian Ltd for conducting ID checks?

February 6th, 2013 by Jonathan Bazely

Experian are a well-established information management company, and have access to a large number of datasets. This means more data is available to validate against, so the higher the pass rate. Experian have been recognised by the DBS as providing an identity validation service tailored to the specific needs of the DBS ‘Route 2’ identity validation pathway. DDC conducted a review of all organisations that offer ID checks to the level required by the DBS. We felt Experian had the best depth and breadth of data and provided a very good understanding of the DBS’s requirements.

The ID check offered by Experian is not a credit check, and at no time do DDC or the Disclosure recipient have access to credit data.
