Regula has announced that it has added new identity documents to its database, bringing the total number of items to 13,000.

The company highlights that its database meticulously describes all security features of identity documents, providing detailed descriptions of how every element should look and how exactly to verify genuineness.

“Our aim is to record every security and unique document feature as precisely as possible by using our expertise in forensic analysis and forensic device development,” said Ihar Kliashchou, Chief Technology Officer at Regula.

“With identity fraud on the rise, it’s vital to know what exactly to pay attention to when verifying a document.

“By backing up our identity verification solutions with such a comprehensive database of IDs, we ensure a seamless, swift and accurate verification process, regardless of the document provided.”

New identity documents

Since the beginning of 2023, Regula says that it has added more than a thousand new document templates to its database.

These include the electronic passports of Bahrain, Iraq, Jamaica, Mongolia, Pakistan and Somaliland.

Other passports that have been added to the database include Barbados, Canada and Paraguay, with ID cards from Paraguay now also on the database.

Regula additionally says that it has updated its set of US driver’s licenses and ID cards that differ greatly from state to state.

The company’s template library now contains the documents issued in 2023 like those of Arizona, Idaho, North Dakota, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
