RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device) is a fast and simple form of identification. That explains how RFID technology has gained acceptance in many different fields over the past ten years. Information about people, animals and goods can be stored and accessed quickly, securely and flexibly using RFID, a contactless form of data transmission. As early as the mid-1990s, PAV recognised the enormous benefits of such technology and was one of the first to develop solutions, for example for electronic passport inlays.
Today, the family-owned company supplies numerous states with inlays for e-passports and ID cards.
The inlays, made of synthetic paper or polycarbonate, can be embedded in any conventional passport. They can be integrated in the passport cover or in the data page. Inlay production at PAV has been evaluated by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).
