Using PassFort

Equifax Canada AML Assist is a data provider that enables you to run the Electronic identity check.

How it works

This is the default behavior for a variant of the Electronic identity check with Equifax Canada AML Assist as the data provider.

The check is performed by searching for the individual’s details (name, date of birth, and address) in the sources supplied by Equifax Canada AML Assist.

The check passes when a 2+2 result is achieved, which happens when either of these conditions are true:

• The individual’s full name and address are matched in one source and the individual’s full name and date of birth are matched in a second source.

If a 2+2 result cannot be achieved, the check looks for a 1+1 result.

The check returns a partial match when a 1+1 result is achieved, which happens when either of these conditions are true:

1. The individual’s full name and date of birth are matched in one source.

2. The individual’s full name and address are matched in one source.

If the conditions are not met for a 2+2 result or a 1+1 result, the check fails.

If the individual’s profile doesn’t have data for the required fields, the check returns an error.

If the country of address in the individual’s profile is anything other than Canada, an error is displayed.

Configuration options

You have the following configuration options:

• Pass check on 1+1 result (optional): When this option is selected, the check passes when a 1+1 result is achieved. When this configuration option is used, partial matches are never returned.

• Date of birth must match in one source to achieve a 1+1 or 2+2 result (optional): This checkbox is deprecated and has no effect.
