External ID Validation Check (Route 2)
What is an External ID Validation Check?
An External ID Validation Check is used when it is not possible to verify the applicant’s identity for a DBS Check using Route 1 guidance due to lack of valid Group 1 documentation. External ID Verification checks are not a stand alone ID check and will need to be provided alongside other documents from the applicant.
The External ID Validation Check will act to confirm the applicant is who they say they are by using a range of data sources. Online DBS works in partnership with CallID services to perform these checks.
