BSI TR-03104 Technical Guideline for production data acquisition, -quality testing and transmission for official documents

For the production of electronic passports the application data of the applicant have to be acquired with adequate high quality before they are transferred to the passport manufacturer. Production data is acquired at the appropriate authorities. These can be municipal registration offices or agencies abroad of the Federal Republic of Germany.

In this scope of application the Technical Guideline for production data acquisition, -quality testing and transmission for passports (TR-PDÜ) addresses producers of hard- and software, passport manufacturers, process developers, passport authorities and other bodies involved in the processing of application data.

This Technical Guideline represents a mandatory specification for all technical systems deployed for the acquisition, quality insurance and transmission of the production data. Manufactures, distributors and operators of such systems have to demonstrate the conformity of their products or services according to TR-PDÜ which is confirmed by BSI.

All documents of this Technical Guideline are available for download (PDF, or .zip German).
