Identity Verification

Apple will verify your identity and/or your organization’s identity when you enroll in the Apple Developer Program or the Apple Developer Enterprise Program.

Our identity verification process for organizations includes several components, including but not limited to a D‑U‑N‑S Number and binding authority check when enrolling as an organization. You will be asked for the D‑U‑N‑S Number associated with your legal entity and, if you are not the owner/founder, you must provide a reference who can confirm that you have the legal authority to enroll the organization and to bind it to legal agreements. To learn more about D-U-N-S Numbers, read the support page.

The Apple Developer Enterprise Program and the iOS Developer University Program each require separate identity verification. To enroll, you’ll need to set up a new Apple ID and go through our standard verification process.

Additional Verification

In some cases, you may need to provide government-issued photo identification. Accepted forms include your driver’s license, passport, or ID card.

If enrolling as an organization, you may be asked for notarized business documents. Depending on your country or region, a solicitor or notary public can provide their signature and seal to certify that the copy you intend to provide to Apple is a true copy of your original document. You can have documents notarized at legal offices, banks, post offices, and other offices that commonly have a solicitor or notary public on staff.
