CV Check Ltd - CV Check launches live technology integration with New Zealand’s RealMe digital ID
RealMe is recognised across Australasia as a leading verified digital ID service

CV Check Ltd (ASX:CV1) has implemented a live launch of their most recent technology integration with RealMe, the digital identity service managed by New Zealand’s Department of Internal Affairs.

To integrate with the RealMe verified service, CV1’s New Zealand subsidiary became a participating agency under New Zealand’s Electronic Identity Verification Act of 2012.

RealMe, an initiative of the NZ Government, was launched in 2013 to make it easier and more secure for people and organisations to access and use online services offered by both the government and the private sector.

“Integration with RealMe”

CV1 chief executive officer Rod Sherwood said: “CV1 continues to broaden its addressable market through expanding its ecosystem and customer take up with each new technology partner integration.

“Digital ID and verification of an individual through their digital ID, is a revolutionary technology trend that is being used by more and more governments to allow individuals to interact with public institutions and it is rapidly being adopted in the private sector.

“CV1 is extremely pleased to have completed this integration with RealMe.”

“Opens new opportunities”

The RealMe service validates that an identity exists and creates a link to the person claiming it.

RealMe uptake has accelerated greatly since 2017 with over 785,000 verified identities issued and is now recognised as a leading digital identity service across Australasia and continues to win industry awards.

Sherwood said: “Not only is this new integration already in use by our customers, it also opens a wealth of new opportunities to CV1.

“For example, the 2009 AML-CFT Act requires reporting entities to verify the full name and date of birth for each customer.

“RealMe advises that it is currently the only acceptable method of identifying such persons via electronic verification available in New Zealand.”
