ISO 22383 Security and resilience - Authenticity, integrity and trust for products and documents - Performance criteria for authentication solutions used to combat counterfeiting of material goods [Revision of ISO 12931]

This project aims to revise the ISO 12931 that was published 2012 and include it in the ISO 22300 family of standards. This International Standard specifies performance criteria and evaluation methodology for authentication solutions used to establish material good authenticity throughout the entire material good life cycle. It does not specify how technical solutions achieve these performance criteria.

The growth of global trade and the reduction of physical controls at borders has increased the risks of bigger volumes of counterfeited products being in circulation. The revised standard would contribute to further strengthen such controls.

Christophe Renard, the project leader responsible for the development of ISO 22383, explain the justification of the revision:

"Since 2012, new technologies (material, digital and combined) have emerged: these may give to counterfeiters and theirISO 22383ISO 22383 counterfeited products new possibilities to be less detectable. At the same time other new technologies may give law enforcement inspectors, legitimate economic operators and consumers better means to detect counterfeits and act accordingly. A new standard is needed to consider such emerging technologies so the standard can recommend ways to stay ahead of fraudsters. Since 2012, the growth of global trade and the reduction of physical controls at borders has increased the risks of bigger volumes of counterfeited products being in circulation. The new standard would contribute to further strengthen such controls.

The ISO 12931:2012 standard is the foundation to conduct this revision, for example by considering data-related aspects, traceability, consumers verification, or full product life cycle. This revision will ensure adequate complementarity with recent or coming TC292 standards."

Working Group 4 will drive this revision. New experts may be expected to join, in order to make sure that a wide(r) range of aspects are considered in this revised standard.
