ICAO International Standard for eMRTD

eMRTD ISO/IEC 18745 Conformance Certification

Conformance testing services for reliable, secure contactless eMRTD and inspection systems


The International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) and ISO/IEC 18745 standards are the international test standards for functional validation of electronics Machine Readable Travel Documents (eMRTD) implementing ISO/IEC 14443 standard protocol in 13.56 Mhz RF communications. It is the foundation for ensuring the durability, reliability and interoperability of ePassports. The ICAO - ISO/IEC 18745 standards and derived testing solutions allow conformance assessment of:

  • End-user contactless eMRTD
  • Packaged devices (inlays, modules, mobile eMRTD)
  • Embedded integrated circuits (hardware chips, secure elements)

Conformance Testing Services

KEOLABS' Testing Laboratory provides all levels of ICAO - ISO/IEC 18745 testing for validation of eMRTD, including:

  • Durability
  • Analog level implementation
  • Protocol / digital level implementation
  • Application level implementation

The laboratory is an accredited testing facility for eMRTD such as epassports and identity cards.

  • ICAO - ISO/IEC 18745 debug sessions are available for:
    • eMRTD - ISO/IEC 14443
    • Card Reader (PCD) - ISO/IEC 14443
  • ICAO - ISO/IEC 18745​ conformance testing is available for:
    • eMRTD - ISO/IEC 14443


Additional Related Services

The following standards are also pertinent to the qualification of eMRTD and readers implementing ISO/IEC 14443. The Testing Laboratory offers services for qualification of products for the following related standards:
