PRADO: Do you have to check identity documents?

Successful launch of PRADO in December 2007

EUROPEAN DYNAMICS (ED) implemented the Public Register of Authentic Identity and Travel Documents Online (PRADO) for the General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union (GSC).

PRADO is a publicly available multilingual site (22 EU languages), offering easy access to official information on security features of authentic identity and travel documents, as well as visas and stamps. The site contains images and multilingual summary information on some of the most commonly used identity documents of the 27 EU Member States and some third countries. Users may find a full description of the most important and the easily-checkable security features of these documents, like watermarks, security threads and more.

The system guarantees the highest possible level of quality and reliability as it is regularly updated with valuable information from FADO (False and Authentic Documents Online); a central system for the exchange of information on travel identity documents between the EU Member States, Iceland and Norway. PRADO is addressed to the general public as well as governmental and non-governmental organizations, including employers, postal services, banks and credit institutions, security companies, vehicle hire agencies, notaries, etc.
