^ 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. End users are responsible for ensuring the quality of the image provided, and LexisNexis Risk Solutions takes no responsibility for the image quality.
