ISO/IEC 18013 e-Driving License Conformance Certification

Conformance testing services for reliable, secure contactless electronic driving licenses


The ISO/IEC 18013 standard establishes guidelines for the design format and data content of ISO/IEC-compliant driving licences (IDL) with regard to human-readable features (ISO/IEC 18013-1), machine-readable technologies (ISO/IEC 18013‑2), and access control, authentication and integrity validation (ISO/IEC 18013-3). It creates a common basis for international use and mutual recognition of the IDL without impeding individual countries/states from applying their privacy rules and national/community/regional motor vehicle authorities in taking care of their specific needs.
