Nachweis der Legitimation

09:43 Feb 18, 2016
German to English translations [PRO]
Law/Patents - Finance (general) / Finance agreement for a large loan
German term or phrase: Nachweis der Legitimation
Can this be translated as proof of identity or is it better translated in a wider way, given that "legitimation" can also refer to authorization, power to act etc.

Context: This is one requirement of the borrower before the loan can be drawn down.

Thanks in advance,

Proof of identity

The below term base gives a number of uses, but in a banking context I would have thought proof of identity would suffice.
