Morpho (Safran) has been awarded a contract by the Swedish Transport Agency (Transportstyrelsen) to produce highly secure driver licenses and digital tachograph cards. Sweden began issuing the new driver licenses in January and is set to start issuing the digital tachograph cards later this year.
Sweden’s redesigned driver licenses and digital tachograph cards will integrate Morpho’s latest state-of-the-art security features to comply with new European Union standards and provide enhanced protection against document fraud.
Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Morpho said, “Decades of experience matched with continuous innovation have positioned Morpho as a trusted supplier of driver licenses throughout the world. We are honored to have won this contract and look forward to future opportunities within Sweden’s ID document market.”
Morpho has also equipped Sweden with a criminal identification system, which is being upgraded with Morpho’s latest biometric recognition technology.
