A replacement card is intended for use in place of a lost, forgotten or broken ID card. This is only intended for temporary use. The period of validity for a replacement card is at most three months. After its use, the card must be returned to the registration point.
The cards have access control technology that can be read remotely.
The surface of the replacement contains the card holder’s data. The same replacement card can be used multiple times by different people, as the data on the card is empties after each user ends its use.
Replacement cards are delivered to organisations as empty card frames. Data is only uploaded to the cards when they are handed over to a user. A temporary certificate is uploaded to the replacement card at the registration point.
The creation of a replacement card requires that a card application has been submitted for the person in question in the Vartti system.
