AUA & KUA Audit

Getting enrolled with UIDAI will enable organizations to provide E-KYC and Aadhaar based authentication. Becoming an Authentication User Agency (AUA) is required for any agency/institution registered in India, which is looking to use Aadhaar authentication services of UIDAI. It is also a requisite step in registering as KYC User Agency (KUA) for using the Aadhaar eKYC service, the instantaneous pre-ratified Aadhaar based KYC solution.


UIDAI has recently updated the AUA audit guidelines. There have been various changes including obtaining consent, transparency and purpose limitation, amongst others. AUAs/KUAs shall ensure that their operations are audited by an information systems auditor certified by a recognised body on an annual basis and on a need basis to ensure compliance with UIDAI standards and specifications. The audit report shall be shared with UIDAI upon request.
