On 11 February, the Law Society Gazette reported that the UK government has unveiled draft rules governing the future use of digital identities to help ‘revolutionise’ the conveyancing process. The digital identity products would allow people to prove who they are, where they live or how old they are. The so-called Trust Framework comprises specific standards and frameworks for organisations that provide or use digital identity services. Organisations will be required to publish a yearly report explaining which demographics have been, or are likely to have been, excluded from their service and why. The UK government Department has published an ‘alpha version’ of the framework and is seeking feedback, with its survey closing at midday on 11 March.
