Checking a persons documents

Checking a person’s documents to determine if they have the right to carry out the type of work you are offering comprises of three key steps:

1. Obtain the person’s original documents;
2. Check them in the presence of the holder; and
3. Make and retain a clear copy, and make a record of the date of the check

Step 1 - Obtain

  • Obtain acceptable documents from List A or List B.
  • Accept original documents only.
  • An expired passport of a UK national or a national of a European Economic Area country or Switzerland is acceptable.
  • Documents held by nationals outside of the EEA or Switzerland must be current.
