Passport Examination Procedure Manual (Second Edition)

Passport Examination Procedures Manual (PEPM) Second Edition has been developed as an update to the first edition (2007) in response to the development of new security features in the production of identity and travel documents. For example, the new manual now includes sections providing information on biometrically enabled documents with radio frequency identification (RFID) and more detail on the use of polymer substrates. The manual is separated in two main parts: part I centres on travel document production and security features (chapters 1–9), and part II deals with travel document examination (chapters 10–12). In addition, the second edition of PEPM contains a glossary of terms for passport production and security features.
