Greece Launches Tender For New IDs and Security Documents, Along EU Guidelines

The Hellenic Police (ELAS) launched a tender on Thursday for the creation of an electronic Information System for Security Documents, which will issue new IDs and upgrade current passports, driving licences and other documents, thus implementing an EU decision that was first taken in November 2018. 
According to ELAS, the company that will undertake to manufacture the new security documents and IDs must already have produced similar documents in another two EU member-states and adhere to the current security standards of both the European Union and the International Civil Aviation Organisation. 
The new system will also upgrade the travel and other documents issued to foreign nationals in Greece. 
The EU's decision to overhaul the security standards of these documents and is due to become an EU directive in the coming days, after which all EU member-states will have 24 months to issue their citizens' documents in line with the new standards.
