Recently a company advertised that the Sony Passport System was approved by the Home Office. We at System Insight knew this to be untrue as is in fact the Home Office doesn't have any procedures in place for approving equipment.
As we are always striving to provide our customers with the correct information we complained to the ASA (Advertising Standards Agency) and our complaint was investigated and upheld.
The HM Border and Immigration Service do however successfully use Hi-Ti 640ID and BS-iD400 Photo Printers as do other government agencies.
