Secure national ID card support for Montenegro

Datacard Group : 01 June, 2009  (Application Story)
Card and passport issuing systems from Datacard to be used by the Government of Montenegro for secure state documentation program
Datacard Group has announced that the Datacard MX6000 card issuance system, the Datacard PB6500 passport issuance system and extensive IT suite have been chosen as part of a complete solution to enroll, adjudicate and personalize Montenegro's national identification and travel credentials.

A primary driver in the decision-making process was the fact that the MX6000 and the PB6500 are both built on the same platform, share the same user interface and use the same parts for repair and maintenance needs. This made deployment and support of the issuance systems much more efficient and cost effective as well as expediting the training process.

A priority for Montenegro was to ensure that their identification credentials offered the highest levels of security and fraud prevention, while being in compliance with European Union standards and ICAO 9303 recommendations.

The e-passport design utilizes an electronic chip embedded into the polycarbonate data page which makes it fully interoperable and in compliance with ICAO 9303 requirements. The passport, national ID card and driver's license are also laser engraved, making them highly resistant to fraud and counterfeiting.

"This was a unique program for Datacard Group," said Jim Runcie, regional vice president of EMEIA for Datacard Group. "Datacard built a consortium of complementary manufacturers (including Trueb AG and Oesterreichische Staatsdruckerei GmbH) and deployed the solution on time and to budget - illustrating that we are capable and qualified to deliver complete solutions in the Government ID marketplace".

Since rollout more than 93,000 passports, 152,000 national ID cards and nearly 70,000 driver's licenses have been issued. Montenegrin government officials and citizens alike have expressed their acceptance and approval of both the documents themselves and the efficiency with which the program has been deployed.

Datacard Group is celebrating their 40 year anniversary in 2009 and offers the world's best-selling secure ID and card personalization solutions. The company's portfolio includes systems for high-volume card issuance, card delivery and fulfillment, secure ID issuance and passport personalization, plus extensive service and supply offerings. The Datacard Group Government Solutions group serves over 300 programs in 85 countries around the world.
