Helping you confirm identity documents are valid and authentic


In addition to various screening checks against an array of positive and negative datasets, hard copy identity checks can add another layer of confidence in confirming an individual’s identity. Document authentication can help organisations confirm that various identity documents are real and valid to help manage identity, prevent fraud and offer customers a better on-boarding experience.

We offer two different forms of document assessment, which can be linked back to your own bespoke scorecard, configured to meet your risk appetite.

^ Identity documents are regularly updated by their issuing authorities and whilst we endeavour to account for such changes as swiftly as possible, the coverage of identity documents the system is able to authenticate will fluctuate from time to time.
Due to the nature of the origin of public record information, the public records and commercially available data sources used in reports may contain errors. Source data is sometimes reported or entered inaccurately, processed poorly or incorrectly, and is generally not free from defect. This product or service aggregates and reports data, as provided by the public records and commercially available data sources, and is not the source of the data, nor is it a comprehensive compilation of the data. Before relying on any data, it should be independently verified. The Document Authentication feature in LexisNexis IDU requires you provide a good quality image in order to be able to authenticate an identity document.
