Maintaining your accreditation
The first on site visit will take place within six months after the grant of the MIDAS Alliance certification.
MIDAS Alliance Accreditation is the owner of the MIDAS Alliance Accreditation Scheme and is an independent entity to MIDAS Alliance Consulting, ensuring impartial certification of PAS499 compliance.
Certifying to the scheme enables organisations to give confidence to all interested parties that the complete lifecycle of their handling of digital identity meets the PSD2 requirement of strong customer authentication.
Certification will be vital to any organisation that incorporates digital identification, validation, proofing or authentication, into their business model whether they are organisations that provide software or hardware solutions; provide digital id services; those that rely on products and outsourced services for their digital ID and authentication; and those that build and operate their entire digital identity ecosystem.
The scheme sets out the rules and requirements to achieve PAS499 accreditation, and the commitments and obligations required of each participant including the MIDAS Alliance and those applying for PAS499 compliance certification. It is designed to be read in conjunction with PAS499.
Any organization or individual making an application for certification to the MIDAS Alliance Accreditation Scheme is recommended to obtain a copy of the PAS 499 from the BSI online shop (http://shop.bsigroup.com/) or any other standards retailer.
