Registration Authority

Our Registration Authority service has expert knowledge of the Spine and the smartcard issuing process and are able to assist you with everything relating to smartcards, including full sponsor training and advice and guidance.

We have the ability to complete smartcard registrations both on and off site and within 24 hours of the initial request.  Our remote access software enables us to access any desktop via the internet to support users on RA applications.
