In MPR v5 the Client Authorisation form has been updated. Earlier versions of signed Client Authorisations held by you remain valid.
For firms using ZipID to assist with the signing, collection and return of Client Authorisations, our signature will continue to be placed in the section marked “REPRESENTATIVE AGENT” at the bottom of the updated form (see extract below).
In consultation with ARNECC, we’ve taken the opportunity to update clause 17 and 2.2 of our Verification Agency Agreement. These updates are consistent with the authority given in our existing opt-in process for users to elect for ZipID to sign Client Authorisations as Representative Agent together with every VOI we complete.
"The Client Authorisation and any evidence supporting the Client Authorisation can be stored electronically"
i.e. retention of a completed electronic copy of the signed form (e.g. as a PDF as part of the ZipID VOI Report) meets compliance.
