This document describes the test methods used for conformity testing, that is methods for determining whether a driving licence can be considered to comply with the requirements of the ISO/IEC 18013 series for:

— machine readable technologies (ISO/IEC 18013-2), and

— access control, authentication and integrity validation (ISO/IEC 18013-3).

The test methods described in this document are based on specifications defined in ISO/IEC 18013-2 and ISO/IEC 18013-3 and underlying normative specifications.

This document deals with test methods specific to IDL requirements. Test methods applicable to (smart) cards in general (e.g. those specified in the ISO/IEC 10373 series) are outside the scope of this document.

Hence the purpose of this document is to:

— provide IDL implementers with requirements for conformity evaluation,

— provide IDL issuing authorities with requirements for quality assurance, and

— provide test laboratories and test tool providers with test suite requirements.
