Procedure for TTP-assurers


  1. User sends request via mail to Support (or TTP group)
  2. Support checks user account and enters result in a note into OTRS:
    • Are TTP assurances entered?
      • If one is present, write down the place, date, registration number and name of TTP as well as the name of the TTP Assurer
      • If two are present, write down for each the place, date, registration number and name of TTP as well as the name of the TTP Assurer and request for TTP TOPUP
      • If two TTP and a TTP TOPUP entries are present, stop process
    • If account shows more than 100 points, stop process
    • Name, DoB and primary email address of the user are entered (why DoB needs to be added to the OTRS ticket ?!?), Name and email should be enough to contact the requestor
  3. Support forwards request to TTP mailing list and closes the ticket.
  4. One of the available TTP admin picks up the request, prepares a PDF and sends it to the primary email address of the user, adding his own postal address to the mail (+ TTPadmins email address: the TTP user receives the email and can reply to the TTP Admin, the TTP cannot reply the email to the TTP user, so therefor the email address of the TTP admin should be added to the TTPCAP form)
    • The TTP Assurer creates a TTP CAP form as PDF form for internal use. TTP admin goes to WoT and Assurer someone to get the personal data but does not finish the assurance.
      In this form the TTP Assurer enters the user name, DoB and primary email address and creates a personalized PDF file for the user.
      The TTP Assurer sends this PDF file to the user with his own postal address. The TTP user prepares an envelope and hands it over to the TTP. The TTP sends back the filled and signed TTP CAP form in the prepared envelope.
      If it is the second request, the TTP Assurer has to point out that the user is not allowed to go to the first TTP again, which shall be stated clearly in the mailing.

       Dear <user>,
       you requested a TTP assurance. Attached you will find the personalized TTP CAP form.
       Please print this out and take all pages to the meeting with the TTP.
       Check if your personal data entered in the TTP CAP is correct. If there are any errors report them to me.
       <Optional: Your first TTP assurance was done with <name first TTP> in <place of first TTP>.
       You are not allowed to do the second TTP assurance with the same person. 
       In case you will take the same TTP again, the assurance will not be accepted and not entered into the system.> 
       Once you finished the meeting with the TTP, send back the filled, signed and sealed page to my postal address:
       TTP Assurer
       Town ZIP
       If anything is unclear or you want additional information, do not hesitate to ask.
       Best regards
       TTP Assurer

Questions and Answers


List of Approved TTPs

Will there be a mailing list for TTPs?

Where to direct TTP Users' and TTP Notaries' questions?

Where to send the CAP forms from TTPs so they can be received by TTP Assurers?

Since the TTP Assurer sends a pre-filled TTP CAP form with his postal address to the user, the TTP user and TTP knows where to send the TTP CAP form to.

Shall the available list of TTP Assurer be announced to TTP users? To TTP Notaries?
