Strangers become real people

Digitisation in the telecommunications sector

Telecommunications companies are also subject to ever-greater regulatory requirements when acquiring new customers. The new Anti-Terror Act adopted by the Bundestag (Federal Parliament) in June 2016 made it a necessity to verify and store the customer’s identity using an efficient process. Amongst other things, the law applies to the purchase of pre-paid cards for mobile telephones. In order to preclude false identification information from being provided by mobile phone purchasers, the new law obliges sellers to require the presentation of an official photo identification document. The type of process used must be logged as part of the review. Furthermore, information regarding the type, number and issuing agency must be stored. This requirement can be satisfied by storing the data on the ID-CHECK server.
