Let’s discuss about them -

Biometric Device Certification

Its fundamental objective is to provide quality assessed authentication or enrolment Biometric devices, including QR Code scanner device for offline authentication as it provides safe, reliable, and secure devices as well as a device that has met the UIDAI standards.

Let me elaborate a little bit more about Biometric Device Certification :

The benefits of Biometrics Device Certification are :

Access to the biometric devices which have met the UIDAI technical specifications.

Provide appropriate systems and resources to provide support to implementation and device usage.

Product Nomenclature Under Biometric Device Certification :

Fingerprint scanner.

QR code scanner.

Single chip microcontroller with integrated secure element.

AUTHIRIS Capability Approval Certificate.

Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) and more

General requirements:

Biometrics Device Specification (may be in the form of brochure)

List of Applicable Regulations/Standards

Certificates requirements:

Certificate for ISO 9001:2008 (Certification for Biometric Device

Test report requirement:

EMI/EMC compliance test report

Safety Compliance Test Report

UIDAI API Specification Compliance Test Report

Environment/Durability compliance test report

Performance test report or FAR of UIDAI requirements with technical rationale.

Process of Biometric Device Certification (Authentication)

A Technical Construction File (TCF) will be prepared to provide confidence to the Certification Body in regard to the Quality of the Device.

Duly file the application BDCS (A)-03-05 along with a replica of TCF, including paying the fee according to the schedule of charges.

Preliminarily, TCF will be evaluated by the Certification Body and Certification Agreement will only be signed if TCF is satisfactory.

Biometric devices, a test kit for image quality, and a replica of TCF will be submitted to the Biometric Device Test Lab (BDTL).

A Service Request Form (SRF) will be filed by the lab authorities along with the submission of the test charges.

BDTL will provide the Probable Date of Completion (PDC).

Certification Body or STQC will inform BDTL Head to proceed Testing according to the Standard Test Plan.
