VAR Appointment Criteria​

IC-ENC wishes to appoint a number of VARs who are capable of taking the ENC data supplied by IC-ENC and incorporating them in an encrypted form within a broader service proposition which the VAR markets and sells widely.

To be appointed, all VARs must be able to demonstrate that they can meet the standard set of criteria for appointment. Any company that applies and can satisfactorily demonstrate that they can meet these criteria will be appointed as a VAR.

The application form is structured and designed to allow you to demonstrate on paper how you are able to meet the criteria for appointment listed above. Pl​ease return your completed applications to IC-ENC as directed in the application form.​

IC-ENC will commission independent assessments of all received applications against the published criteria. Where these assessments are positive, applicants will then be required to physically demonstrate that they can create accurate and complete ENC exchange sets protected using the applicant's chosen data security scheme before they can be appointed.

IC-ENC will treat all appointed VARs equally, providing the ENC data to all VARs on the same conditions and at the same price.

Please feel free to contact IC-ENC ( if you have any questions about becoming an appointed VAR.​​​
