Personalisation of ID-1 cards

Centre for Document Personalisation (CPD MSWiA), together with PWPW, has successfully completed tests of personalisation of e-card blanks. Thus, it confirmed its readiness to enter “production” mode for issuing personalised ID cards with an electronic layer. Video published by CPD MSWiA at Jan 17, 2019
