ISO 22383 Security and resilience - Authenticity, integrity and trust for products and documents - Guidelines and performance criteria for authentication solutions for 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.

Through the revision of ISO 12931 into this new standard, TC 292 is improving the performance criteria and evaluation methodology for authentication solutions used to establish material good authenticity throughout the entire material good life cycle. 

Despite the growing number of conformity regulations, the development of global trade and the reduction of physical controls at borders has increased the risks of bigger volumes of counterfeited products in circulation. The revised standard is aimed at contributing to further strengthen such controls, by giving useful authentication principles, features and processes.

Christophe Renard, the project leader responsible for the development of ISO 22383, explain this on-going revision process:ISO 22383

"The Working Group 4 is actively revisiting the former ISO 12931 standard by considering both the emergence of new technologies (material, digital and combined) and also the new threats they may bring: with the risk that counterfeited products become less detectable and more damaging, new technologies must be considered by legitimate manufacturers and economic operators, by law enforcement inspectors, and also by consumers.

More and more, authentication solutions need to consider several combined elements to be more robust against tampering. They need to incorporate data-related features such as reliable data capture and retrieval along the product’s life cycle, and possibly also add authentication elements directly into the component parts of the product.

This revision considers the other standards developed by WG4 to ensure alignment and value added."

 

Working Group 4 is driving 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.
