("Catenae", the "Company" or the "Group")


Catenae participates in consultation of UK Government's 'Digital Identity Policy'


Catenae Innovation PLC (AIM: CTEA), the AIM quoted provider of digital media and technology, is pleased to announce that it has been invited by the UK Government's Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to participate in the development of a Digital Identity Policy.


The DCMS has issued a draft 'UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework' policy paper that sets out the Government's vision for the rules concerning the future use of digital identities.  The Digital Identity Policy is part of the Government's wider plan to make it quicker and easier for people to verify themselves using modern technology, with the aim to create a process as trusted as using passports or bank statements. The draft policy paper can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-uk-digital-identity-and-attributes-trust-framework.


Catenae will participate in a series of consultations with key stakeholders over the next 6 months, contributing from the perspective of a future identity service provider.


Additionally, Catenae announces that it is in discussions with Public Health Scotland to explore options around the automated transfer of Covid-19 test results to their Covid tracking database using Catenae's Covid-19 operating system.


Where Catenae has been involved in a testing programme, the Company has securely uploaded the associated Covid-19 test results into Public Health England's Point-of-Care Test Result Submission system since October 2020, when it became a legal requirement in England.


Guy Meyer, Chief Executive Officer of Catenae, said: "We are delighted and honoured to have been invited by the UK Government to contribute to the development of this important framework, which, once finalised, is expected to be brought into law. As a participant, we look forward to joining the discussions and highlighting the commercial benefits of the Digital Identity Policy, as well as advising how organisations should handle and protect people's data. Given that Catenae is ISO 27001 accredited and has blockchain at the core of its platform, the Company is well placed to leverage opportunities in this space.


"We are also pleased to be engaged with Public Health Scotland on the automated transfer of Covid-19 data to their own systems, and how Catenae's data management platform can assist with this."
