HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, announced that its card manufacturing operation in Rastede, Germany has earned the Security Management System for Secure Printing certification from Intergraf, the leading global standards body for the security printing industry. The certification validates the achievement of a strict security standard for security printers based on data security, print quality and processes as well as on-site facility security. HID Global is one of only a few card manufacturers producing identity credentials for the government-to-citizen market to hold this distinctive status in the world.

“Global security concerns are driving nations to invest in ultra-secure ID systems, which require dedicated security at every step of development and deployment, including the complex high-security printing phase,” said Rob Haslam, vice president of Government ID Solutions with HID Global. “While our highly skilled and experienced team has been delivering state-of-the-art printing at this facility for decades, this certification means that our customers can trust their ID credentials and equipment are built to the highest standards of printing within the card manufacturing market.” 

The Rastede facility was accredited after a certification process that included screening, risk inventory and a security audit by an accredited certification body. The certification applies to Rastede’s entire product line, including plastic cards, ID badges, ePassport datapages and chip cards (including RFID). Additionally, the auditors certified HID Global Rastede’s ID production, access control and loyalty systems as well as its card production equipment and all related services.

“Our dedication to achieving maximum security in the manufacturing and printing of secure documents is evident in major Government ID programmes worldwide, including the U.S. Green Card, Angola National ID Card, Italian Federal Police Card, Saudi Arabia National ID Card and Costa Rica Foreign Resident Card,” said Haslam.
