Test methods for machine readable travel documents (MRTD) and associated devices -- Part 1: Physical test methods for passport books (durability)

This document provides a set of instructions for evaluation of MRPs which may incorporate contactless integrated circuits. This evaluation is an instrument to establish the ability in principle of a specific type of document to fulfil the requirements of use. It supplies a structured approach to evaluate MRPs by:

— defining reproducible stress methods to submit the document(s) under evaluation to specific stress or environmental conditions;

— defining reproducible evaluation methods to measure numerical values for specific document properties;

— defining test sequences that specify the order in which stress methods and evaluation methods are to be performed;

— defining test plans to link specific user requirements to test sequences and related parameters.

It specifies the minimum criteria to be achieved in order to meet ICAO's expectations for durability of fully personalized MRPs.

Getting upgraded: newly improved guidelines for testing machine-readable passports just out
Passports have come a long way since the days of clunky hand-written books and long(er) immigration queues. These days, the technology is as slick as the security is strict. Ensuring machine-readable passports work effectively and last their lifetime is therefore a rigorous procedure. ISO and IEC internationally...
