Digitizing Identity: Benefits and Risks Highlighted by the Current Regulatory Landscape

In this interactive workshop we will provide the context of international remote identity verification and will compare and contrast different global approaches and how they impact user experience, fraud detection and document design.

This session is designed to bring together specialists from different fields to brainstorm problems and present their proposed solutions. All of the attendees will focus on distinct problems and highlight their insights for the benefit of all the participants.

ITSA Workshop – morning

Best Practices for Tracking and Tracing Excise Products

Hosted by the International Tax Stamp Association (ITSA), this seminar will explore the growing widespread use of traceability systems on excise products and how their integration with secure and independent tax stamp programmes have led to increased tax revenues and the countering of illicit trade in various countries worldwide.

 In particular, the seminar aims to stimulate discussion and offer best-practice recommendations with regard to the impending WHO FCTC Protocol and its requirement for parties to implement global and secure track and trace systems on tobacco products by 2023. In the Latin American region alone, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Panama and Uruguay are all parties to the Protocol and are therefore obliged to implement such systems, so this discussion will be of particular interest to them.

 The seminar is open to revenue and customs authorities, concerned NGOs and academics, and suppliers in the security printing, authentication and secure track and trace field.

Currency seminar will follow in the afternoon – watch this space
