Crawley Borough Council ensures compliance with Keesing AuthentiScan
Crawley Borough Council, as part of its statutory duties, is required to license taxi drivers, operators and vehicles operating in the local authority area. The 2016 Immigration Act made it a legal requirement for local authorities issuing private hire and taxi licenses to ensure that all applicants held a right-to-work in the UK. The council consequently agreed a three-year contract with Keesing partner NSL to support the provision of an identity verification service. NSL implemented Keesing AuthentiScan within the taxi licensing unit and supplied full technical support for the installation and setup of the systems, including providing training to all users. The solution is now in daily use in the taxi licensing unit, reducing the time taken to perform identity verification as well as the need for system users to be trained in both legislative compliance and fraud prevention techniques. AuthentiScan’s ability to validate the authenticity of both British and international driving licenses has been of great benefit to the Crawley City Borough team.
”With the range of documents presented to us, we needed access to a validation system that could provide accurate responses quickly and easily. AuthentiScan did just this and the added support from NSL has been excellent.”
