Reinforce ID Verification With Advanced Barcode Reading
Contemporary IDs are packed with security elements, and barcodes are among the most important ones. However, it’s rather often not that easy to find and read a barcode, as some of them are of poor quality, are in a non-standard location, or are rare and thus hardly readable. However, for Regula, no barcode is a problem.
Our technology is backed up by 220 parsers that cover virtually all possible barcodes in various IDs, regardless of their origin or type, including ones made in accordance with the AAMVA standard widely used in North America. Thanks to deep document analysis backed up by a mix of advanced in-house forensic equipment and rare industry expertise, we know what kind of barcode is inherent to a specific document, which technical parameters it should possess, where to find it, what data it should contain, and how this data should be recorded. So, we check it all—and if we see any inconsistencies (wrong type of barcode in a particular passport, incorrect date, invalid country code, etc.), you’ll immediately see them too.
A Code for Every Purpose
Regula barcode reading technology automatically locates, reads, and validates all types of barcodes to help different industries enable fast and reliable ID verification.
Composed of vertical lines and spaces, 1D barcodes are commonly used to encode data of in-store products and certain identification documents. Regula barcode reading technology can process:
Code 11, 39, 93, 128
Interleaved 2 of 5
Universal Product Codes – UPC-A and UPC-E
European Article Numbering – EAN-8 and EAN-13
Composed of larger-format grids or matrixes, 2D barcodes are frequently used for online communication and personal identification on travel documents. Regula barcode reading technology can process:
