ICAO 9303 PART 10
Machine Readable Travel Documents - Part 10: Logical Data Structure (LDS) for Storage of Biometrics and Other Data in the Contactless Integrated Circuit (IC)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
The Seventh Edition of Doc 9303 represents a restructuring of the ICAO specifications for Machine Readable Travel Documents. Without incorporating substantial modifications to the specifications, in this new edition Doc 9303 has been reformatted into a set of specifications for Size 1 Machine Readable Official Travel Document (TD1), Size 2 Machine Readable Official Travel Documents (TD2), and Size 3 Machine Readable Travel Documents (TD3), as well as visas. This set of specifications consists of various separate documents in which general (applicable to all MRTDs) as well as MRTD form factor specific specifications are grouped.
This Part 10 of Doc 9303 defines the Logical Data Structure (LDS) for eMRTDs required for global interoperability and defines the specifications for the organization of data on the contactless IC. This requires the identification of all mandatory and optional Data Elements and a prescriptive ordering and/or grouping of Data Elements that MUST be followed to achieve global interoperability for electronic reading of the eMRTD.
Doc 9303-10 provides specifications to enable States and integrators to implement a contactless IC into an eMRTD travel document. This part defines all mandatory and optional data elements, file structures, and application profiles for the contactless IC.
Part 10 should be read in conjunction with:
• Part 1 - Introduction;
• Part 3 - Specifications Common to all MRTDs;
• Part 4 - Specifications for Machine Readable Passports (MRP) and other TD3 size MRTDs;
• Part 5 - Specifications for TD1 Size Machine Readable Official Travel Documents (MROTDs);
• Part 6 - Specifications for TD2 Size Machine Readable Official Travel Documents (MROTDs).
and the relevant contactless IC parts:
• Part 11 - Security Mechanisms for MRTDs;
• Part 12 - Public Key Infrastructure for MRTDs.
