The SIA making changes to the way that people need to prove their identity when applying for a licence.
They are making these changes as the SIA is obliged to follow the identity document requirements of the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), which are set by the Home Office. These changes will bring us into line with evolving central government guidelines.
These new rules will come into effect in mid-February 2019. Please see the SIA website for full details: http://bit.ly/2GYgGXn
