Proof of identity

Suggested Reading Suggested Reading

22 April 2015

​To apply for registration as a person or access to the STC Clearing House, you are required to complete a proof of identity (POI) verification process.

This process:

  • forms part of the required fit and proper person assessment and account application process
  • helps to minimise the potential for fraud in the use of the Clean Energy Regulator's online resources, such as the REC Registry and the STC Clearing House, and
  • is conducted online through the REC Registry.

The person who conducts the account application is the person who will be required to complete the POI verification, and include people at all levels of a company—from the Chief Executive Officer to general staff member.

The verification process

The verification is performed using common Australian identification information, which is available online, such as:

  • Australian passport
  • Australian State and Territory driver's licence
  • change of name certificates, and
  • Australian Electoral Roll information.

You will be asked to verify your identity by providing identification from three different sources; two sources must come from Category A and one from Category B. Identification sources include:

Category A Category B
Australian driver licence (all states and territories)Medicare
Australian PassportMarriage certificate
Australian VisaAustralian Electoral Roll
Birth CertificateWhite Pages
Change of name certificate-

You must ensure you have all relevant identity documentation before you start the online application process, as applications cannot be saved.

Note: the Clean Energy Regulator has an agreement to receive information from the above sources.

If you cannot provide any of the above documentation please contact the Clean Energy Regulator to discuss your options.
