Cards and security devices for personal identification -- Test methods

This document describes the test methods for characteristics of identification cards according to ISO/IEC 7810 and other standards, such as those listed in the Introduction. NOTE 1 Criteria for acceptability do not form part of this document but are found in other International Standards including those mentioned in the introduction. NOTE 2 Test methods described in this document are intended to be performed separately. A given card is not required to pass through all the tests sequentially.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that

are members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through

technical committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of

technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other

international organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also

take part in the work.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for

the different types of document should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject

of patent rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent

rights. Details of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the

Introduction and/or on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents) or the IEC

list of patent declarations received (see http:// patents .iec .ch).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation of the voluntary nature of standards, the meaning of ISO specific terms and

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the

World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT), see www .iso .org/

iso/ foreword .html.

This document was prepared by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology,

Subcommittee SC 17, Cards and security devices for personal identification.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition (ISO/IEC 10373-1:2006), which has been

technically revised. It also incorporates the Amendment ISO/IEC 10373-1:2006/Amd.1:2012. The main

changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:

— three electrostatic discharge tests and the mechanical strength of contacts have been added;

— the ultraviolet light and static magnetic fields tests have been removed;

— the peel strength including the edge of the card test has been added; this test differs from the peel

strength test by allowing layer bond strength measurement at the card edge and the middle area of

the card;

— chemical lists have been revised into tables, which now include the base chemicals for Fuel B and

artificial perspiration solutions (a normative reference was provided in the second edition);

— technical changes have been made to the dynamic bending stress calibration method and opacity

measurement reporting;

— figures, tables and NOTEs have been revised to facilitate understanding of the tests;

— address for availability of optical reference (ORM7810) media has been changed;

— test methods have been refined and relaxed where technically appropriate.
A list of all parts in the ISO/IEC 10373 series can be found on the ISO website.

Any feedback or questions on this document should be directed to the user’s national standards body. A

This document was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology, Subcommittee

SC 17, Cards and security devices for personal identification (previously known as: identification cards).

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition (ISO/IEC 10373-1:2006), of which it constitutes a

major revision with the following changes.

— Inclusion of ICC tests from ISO/IEC 10373-1 Ammendment 1:2012 with minor changes.

— Addition of three Electrostatic Discharge tests and the Mechanical Strength of Contacts.

— Removal of the Ultraviolet light and Static magnetic fields tests.

— Addition of the Peel Strength Including the Edge of the Card test. This test differs from the Peel Strength

test by allowing layer bond strength measurement at the card edge and the middle area of the card.

— Revision of chemical lists into tables, which now include the base chemicals for Fuel B and Artificial

Persperation solutions (a normative reference was provided in the second edition).

— Technical changes to Dynamic Bending Stress calibration method and Opacity measurement reporting.

— Revised figures, tables and informative notes to provide easier and greater understanding of the tests.

— Address for availability of optical reference (ORM7810) media has changed.

— Test methods in the third edition have been refined and relaxed where technically appropriate,

The changes above are a result of industry feedback, harmonisation of standards, and inter-laboratory

[1]

studies (round robin studies) performed by experts from SC17's Working Group 1 . Additional information

has been provided as informative notes within the test methods. Notes are intended to assist in the

DRAFT INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO/IEC DIS 10373-1:2018(E)
Cards and security devices for personal identification —
Test methods —
Part 1:
General Characteristics
1 Scope

This International Standard defines test methods for characteristics of identification cards according to

the definition given in ISO/IEC 7810. Each test method is cross-referenced to one or more base

standards, which may be ISO/IEC 7810 or one or more of the supplementary standards that define the

information storage technologies employed in identification cards applications.

NOTE 1 Criteria for acceptability do not form part of this International Standard but will be found

in the International Standards mentioned above.

NOTE 2 Test methods described in this International Standard are intended to be performed

separately. A given card is not required to pass through all the tests sequentially.

This part of ISO/IEC 10373 defines test methods which are common to one or more card technologies.

Other parts of the standard define technology-specific test methods.
2 Normative references

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated

references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced
