Industry Standards Reports

This is a library of reports that have been published by our ICMA Standards representative after outcomes from ISO and ANSI meetings that impact the card manufacturing process.

Standards are one of the most critical elements in ensuring that a card does what it is supposed to do where it is supposed to do it. The organization ISO (International Organization for Standardization) oversees global standards for thousands of products through various subcommittees and working groups. For the card industry, the primary global working group is ISO/IEC JTC1 SC17WG1. In the United States, the ISO card industry national committee is the U.S. Committee for ID Cards and Related Devices (ANSI/NCITS B10.) ICMA maintains representation on both of these committees through its official Standards Representative, David Tushie, Magellan Consulting. David is at the forefront of current and emerging standards for all types of cards and related devices.

Reports are available from 2011 – 2016. Click here for the reports.
