Callcredit is updating its databases with 2005 electoral roll information and expects to have completedthe process by the end of January.

It seems aboutone-third of councils are embracingthe standardformat for submissions known as Election Markup Language, introduced earlier this year by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister.

Mark Davison, technology development director at Callcredit, says: “The electoral roll is the cornerstone of identity verification and an essential element of the credit granting process. The information changes each year so it is important for CRAs to update their databases.”
