The International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) and ISO/IEC 18745 standard series are the international test standards for functional validation of electronics Machine Readable Travel Documents (eMRTD) implementing ISO/IEC 14443 standard protocol in 13.56 Mhz RF communications. It is the foundation for ensuring the durability, reliability and interoperability of ePassports, European Resident Permits and ID cards. The ICAO - ISO/IEC 18745 standard series and derived testing solutions allow conformance assessment of:

  • End-user contactless eMRTD

  • Packaged devices (inlays, modules, mobile eMRTD)

  • Embedded integrated circuits (hardware chips, secure elements)

  • Inspection system (Reader)

ICUBE provides all levels of ICAO - ISO/IEC 18745 testing for validation of eMRTD, including:

  • Durability based on ISO/IEC 18745-1

  • ISO/IEC 14443 Analog level implementation based on ISO/IEC 18745-2

  • ISO/IEC 14443 Protocol / digital level implementation based on ISO/IEC 18745-2

  • Application level implementation TR-ICAO Part 3

ICUBE also provides all levels of testing for validation of eMRTD Inspection System, including:

  • Analog level implementation based on ISO/IEC 18745-2

  • Protocol / digital level implementation based on ISO/IEC 18745-2

  • Application level implementation TR-ICAO Part 4
     

The laboratory is an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited testing facility.
