Fit and Proper Test: Photocopied Identity Documents
Photocopied identity documents can be accepted as evidence of ID provided that each copy document has an original certification by an appropriate person to confirm that the person is who they claim to be.
An appropriate person is an independent professional person who is not already a friend or relative of the applicant. For example:
- Family GP
- Civil Servant
- Post Office branch employee
In addition to providing a written certification on the copy document to confirm the identification of the applicant, the certifying individual should also provide their business contact details.
