Are digital IDs on the horizon?

The Department of Homeland Security has published [86 FR 31987] a notice of public meeting and extension of the comment period to help inform a potential rulemaking that would amend DHS regulations to set the minimum technical requirements and security standards for mobile or digital driver's licenses/identification cards (collectively “mobile driver's licenses” or “mDLs”) to enable federal agencies to accept mDLs for official purposes under the REAL ID Act and regulation.

The virtual public meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 30, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (EDT). Requests to attend the meeting and request for accommodations for a disability must be received by June 25, 2021.

The original Request for Information, "Minimum Standards for Driver's Licenses and Identification Cards Acceptable by Federal Agencies for Official Purposes; Mobile Driver's Licenses” (86 FR 20320), was published April 19, 2021. On April 27, 2021, DHS announced a 19-month extension of the REAL ID Act full enforcement date due to circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning on May 3, 2023, federal agencies may only accept driver's licenses and state-issued identification documents for official purposes that are REAL ID-compliant and issued by a REAL ID compliant state.

Comments on the Request for Information are due by July 30, 2021.
