ISO/IEC 7501-1:2005

Identification cards -- Machine readable travel documents -- Part 1: Machine readable passport

ISO/IEC 7501-1:2005 is a short form endorsement of specific parts of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Doc 9303 Part 1 - Machine Readable Passports. ICAO Doc 9303 specifies the form and provides guidance on the construction of machine readable passports (MRPs), in particular in relation to those aspects of the MRP where details of the rightful holder are presented in a form which is both visually and machine readable.

The edition of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Document; i.e. Doc 9303 Part 1 - Machine Readable Passports, Section III, Technical Specifications which was adopted as ISO/IEC 7501-1:1997 is now out of date and in the process of being revised. Once the new edition of Doc 9303 Part 1 - Machine Readable Passports is finalized by the TAG/MRTD, ISO/IEC JTC 1 will undertake its consideration for endorsement as a new fifth edition of ISO/IEC 7501-1.
