    Default dominican cedula among the best IDs

    few hours ago el caribe proudly announced that dominican cedula was the best and safest document of the year, according to international card manufacturers association. they said: La Junta Central Electoral (JCE) informó este domingo que la nueva Cédula de Identidad y Electoral de la República Dominicana ha sido reconocida como el documento de identidad personal más seguro, mejor diseñado y mejor fabricado del mundo durante el año 2014, según una entidad internacional.

    i checked the ICMA page and the cedula is a finalist of their elan awards with western australia driver's license being a winner: International Card Manufacturers Association - Elan Awards |
    (scroll down the page for the ID and access control cards category)

    it is a great achievement and congrats even if el caribe exaggerated a bit. i was supposed to post this news earlier today but had stuff to do. i checked el caribe site just now and they are eating their hat already: La Junta Central Electoral (JCE) informó este domingo que la nueva Cédula de Identidad y Electoral de la República Dominicana ha sido reconocida entre los documentos de identidad personal más seguros, mejor diseñados y mejor fabricados del mundo durante el año 2014, según una entidad internacional.

    the story is here: El Caribe » Reconocen cédula de RD entre documentos más seguros del mundo diseñados en 2014

    original link will now redirect but i here is a screen print:



    good to see they were able to curb their enthusiasm and correct the mistake.

    We didn't win the thing because on this round of the card we don't include the embedded chip.

    There was no point in doing so at this stage if we didn't have the equipment in place already to make the best use of it and be able to secure it.

    Once we roll out the new full system, as planned, the newer cards later on after the 2016 elections will be making use of the chip.

    The point of security is that we are in the process of negotiating the royalties and license to manufacture the chips in the DR. Keeping the security at the max from manufacture to issuing.

    We need millions of chips. Costs are bigger when including them, when there's no present use for such tech in our system, as is now.
    One Dominican at a time please!

    Are you suggesting that another new cedula is possible soon? Are you sure?

    Sounds like a new cedula is coming. I guess the plan is to track, tax and manage the people in the DR and the chip will help do that.

    Most if not all EU countries include microchip on their ID cards since several years ago. Microchips are also embedded in passports (inside the biometric page).

    The reaction given you would think the JCE were involved in the technology, design or any stage other than aesthetics. Give the guys a lolly pop, let them get on with trying to decide who gets one. Once they know who's in the country and they have any control over that, then they'll get a pat on the back and a jumbo.

    This will eventually be done around the world, in every country. Getting ready for the New World Order.

    He is talking about we as in Dominicans. PICARDO owns a home and business in the DR and spends
    6 months out of the year in HIS country. (DR)
