EN ISO 14816 register

 

How to become registered

 

The uniqueness of the EN ISO 14816 identification codes is realised and safeguarded through a hierarchical registration structure, which is illustrated in the figure below:

 

 

CRA = Central Registration Authority (NEN)

CS1 NRA/I = National Registration Administrator for Issuers (normally the national standards institute)

CS1 Issuer = Issuer of unique service codes, for example a toll road operator

CS2 Manufactures = Manufacturer of AVI equipment

As the illustration shows, how to obtain a code depends on your "role" in the system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Registration NRA for Issuers

CS1 NRA/I

 

Why should I register?

You may have received a request from an Issuer in your country, applying for an Issuer Identifier. In order to be allowed to issue identifiers, you should be registered by the Central Registration Authority. If no AVI/AEI system is in operation in your country, then there is no need for an NRA/I.

What are the responsibilities of an NRA/I?

See section A.2.2 of EN ISO 14816.

Can I be registered as the NRA/I for my country?

There can only be one NRA/I in each country. It is normally the national standards institute, but the task may be delegated with the approval of the state authorities and/or the national standards institute depending on the situation in your country.

How do I apply?

Simply complete this form, sign it and send it to the Central Registration Authority:

Registration Issuer

CS 1 Issuer

 

What is an "issuer"?

Issuer is defined by EN ISO 14816 as "a body authorised by the NRA/I to issue a CS1 Service Code/Unambiguous Number." An example of an issuer is a toll road operator. Within a country, each issuer is identified by a unique identifier ("issuer identifier"). The combination of the issuer identifier and the country identifier assigned to the National Registration Administrator (NRA/I) provide uniqueness.

Can I become an issuer?

ENV ISO 14816 lies down the following criteria:

  1. the applicant shall be a single entity with a legal status;
  2. the applicant shall use the issuer identifier for an agreed use within the intended scope;
  3. the applicant shall pay any fees required by the NRA/I based on the guidelines in Annex 5 of the standard;
  4. the issuer identifier shall only be issued by the NRA/I when there is expected to be an immediate use, or when the NRA/I considers that such requirement is imminent;
  5. the NRA/I may request a national Service code/ Unambiguous coding structure. The details that the NRA/I may request shall be the details of his local numbering substructures within his Service code/ Unambiguous number structure, but the Unambiguous identification codes shall not be revealed to the NRA/I.

How do I apply for an issuer identifier?

Apply in writing to your National Registration Administrator (NRA/I). Your NRA/I must be registered by us first before it can assign an issuer identifier to you. You cannot apply for an issuer identifier directly through this web site.

Where do I find my NRA/I?

In most cases the national standards organisation functions as NRA/I. NRA/I's are registered for EN ISO 14816 too. Perhaps your NRA/I is already on our list. If not, please request your national standards organisation to apply with us for registration as NRA/I.

Can I request more than one issuer identifier?

Yes, EN ISO 14816 does permit the allocation of several identifiers to one issuer. Each of the identifiers will then be treated as belonging to a separate issuer.
