Creating each person's NIR record from new, based on rigorous checking

31. When a person applies to the Scheme, they provide a small set of biographical and biometric information. A range of background checks will be carried out, based on this information. For example, biographical details will be corroborated against private and public sector databases, such as those of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and the Immigration and Nationality Directorate (IND). Biometrics will be checked against those of other people who have enrolled in the Scheme, to stop the same person applying twice under different identities. This corroborated information will be stored in the new NIR record.

My guess, based on hearsay only, is that these are two of the the least accurate databases you could find. If you want accuracy they'd do far better to head over to Experian and Equifax. But dont expect to learn much from them about how a government can earn public trust.
