Consultation description

We welcome written responses to this call for evidence from all interested parties, including citizens and businesses, as well as organisations who anticipate being a consumer or creator of digital identity tools or services, and those focused on protecting civil liberties.

We also encourage responses from individuals or organisations who represent the interests of citizens, vulnerable or otherwise, who are susceptible to being digitally excluded, as well as individuals or organisations who represent citizens with a particular protected characteristic.

In your response, please clarify:

  • if you are responding on behalf of an organisation or in a personal capacity
  • which questions you are answering by referring to our numbering system. There is no need to respond to all of the questions if they are not all relevant to you
  • whether you are willing to be contacted (in which case, please provide contact details)
  • whether you want your response to remain confidential for commercial or other reasons. If you prefer to engage in person please specify this. We will try our best, resource-allowing, to find opportunities to do this.

We will also be holding events with industry and civil society groups during this process to explore the issues in more detail. If you would like to take part in these, please email your name, organisation and area of interest to by 2nd August 2019.

We will publish a summary of relevant responses later in 2019.
