# Verification process
The verification process allows any Trusted Service Provider (TSP) to mark a user as being already verified.
This procedure needs to be followed in order to allow any user to buy a membership and is the second sub-process (along with the invitation one) to be part of the accreditation procedure.
# Verifying a user
In order to mark a user as being properly verified, you must be a TSP.
If you wish to become one please ask the government to elect you.
To properly verify a user you must perform a verification transaction.
