Evidence of Identity

Education Sector Logon Evidence of Identity Information

When Education Sector Logon Users register to use education sector online services or applications they need to provide two forms of identification documents as proof of who they are to meet the Evidence of Identity [EOI] requirements for the Education Sector Logon.

EOI Requirements for an Education Sector Logon User

Two types of Evidence of Identification documentation as outlined below;

  • One type of EOI document to be provided from the Primary Identification Documents listed below
  • One type of EOI document to be provided from the Supporting Identification Documents listed below

Please Note

  • Users requesting a change to their given or family name (e.g. by marriage or deed poll) should provide a third document from the Name Change Requirements section below as certification of the name change.
  • All EOI documentation should be current (not expired).

EOI Responsibilities for Authorisers, Delegated Authorisers or EPA Authorisers

An Education Sector Logon Authoriser (from your organisation) must confirm they have sighted the original, or a certified copy (certified by a Justice of the Peace, Doctor, Kaumatua, Minister of Religion etc), of both of your identification documents prior to signing off your Education Sector User Access Request.

If the EOI documentation presented indicates a name change (e.g. by marriage or deed poll) the applicant should provide a third document from the Name Change Requirements section below as certification of the name change. If this documentation is not provided then the name cannot be used in the Education Sector Logon.
