NSL launches world’s smartest identity and screening service

NSL, the rapidly growing services group that manages complex outsourced services to central and local government and the NHS, has added a Validations Solutions service to its portfolio of capabilities.

NSL’s Validations Solutions tightens up the document and right-to-work validation processes by using the world’s most comprehensive identity document reference database, which is the only system partnered with the International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol). It offers all employers, public-sector organisations and government bodies managed screening and document validation services, bespoke recruitment and screening platform software, basic and enhanced CRB check status, right-to-work audit and compliance support, as well as validation training, advice, and support to in-house teams.

The new business stream operates within the Group’s Central Government division, and will be headed up by former Scotland Yard police officer, Ken Hanslip.

Dale Wood, Central Government Director said, “NSL has built up considerable experience in validating identity documents and right-to-work status and maintains very close links with the Home Office and United Kingdom Border Agency, (UKBA). The Validation Solutions service will offer access to the Keesing Reference Systems, which are recognised as being class-leading solutions and to the expertise of Ken and his team who retain considerable experience in document fraud and validation techniques.”

NSL’s is the UK’s largest processor of Penalty Charge Notices (PCN), as well as employing the UK’s most civil enforcement officers, which it deploys on behalf of sixty local authorities. It also works in partnership with the NHS, operating non-emergency patient transport services, and passenger transport for airport operator, BAA.

NSL has been appointed by Keesing as its exclusive agent to re-sell its ID document managing system in the UK’s pre-employment screening market. The system offers professional authentication functionality in seconds; scanning, inspection, authentication and

archival of domestic and international identity documents in seconds.

The offering is particularly pertinent in the UK’s right-to-work area.
