Regulation Resources

Regulation Resources allows customers to comply with the individual country DID registration requirements via API.

The regulation requirements are unique to each country and type of DID number. DIDWW customers and their end users have a collective obligation to comply with these regulations.

To review the regulation requirements for each individual country and number type you can use Requirements resource.

The Identity and Addresses may require additional proofs of existence.

The quantity of proofs required is indicated in the returned values of Get Requirements request. For more information review Requirements Object.

Attention

All verifications will be reviewed by DIDWW Compliance Team and once approved the same identity and address can be used again for the DID types that fall under the same level of restrictions.

  1. Check the Registration requirements for the DID that you are required to register.
