New ANSI/NASPO BC 2019 Minimum Security Requirements for United States Birth Certification Documents.
NASPO INTERNATIONAL is pleased to announce the approval by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) of a new American standard developed by NASPO. The standard is titled as “ANSI/NASPO BC 2019, Minimum Security Requirements for United States Birth Certification Documents.” The scope of this standard is to define minimum security requirements for the design, production, supply chain, and recommendations for issuance of government birth certificates used for official purposes. The standard will not establish requirements for the handling and security of Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
The goal for this standard is to protect against fraud and reduce the risk associated with using compromised documents that support critical transactions. This standard establishes the minimum security technologies that should be incorporated into birth certificates for authentication, and the minimum requirements for manufacture and distribution to vital records offices. This standard also recommends best practices for the secure storage and issuance of birth certificates.
This standard was developed under the procedures established by NASPO INTERNATIONAL and the American National Standards Institute. This includes the establishment of a standards development committee of industry experts and interested parties. NASPO INTERNATIONAL would like to thank those organizations and individuals that participated and supported the development of this critical standard.
The standard has been made available for purchase on our website here.
