  • Director Identification Number Reference Group key messages September 2018

    Initial meeting of the DIN reference group covering the group's role and purpose going forward.

    • Very strong support for the introduction and implementation of DIN.
    • Minimum ‘100 points’ of identity verification should be required to receive a DIN.
    • Moderate to strong support for a higher level of identity verification.
    • Important to look at use of new and emerging digital identity technologies (only when there is an acceptable level of confidence and assurance around identity biometrics).
    • Application process should be simple, completed in real-time and integrated with natural touchpoints. Additionally, a non-digital alternative should also be available.
    • Strong support for a communication and education campaign for directors and the community being incorporated in the project.
