Test cards

Test cards are suitable for testing technical functionalities in connection with the deployment of a certificate or a system development project. A test card can be used, for example, to test card readers or the login processes of various information systems or applications. Test cards only work in test systems.

The data content of test card certificates is otherwise the same as the data content of production certificates. The personal data on the test card certificate is not based on any real personal data.

Ordering a test card

Test cards are ordered from e-services. If your organisation does not yet have an e-services account, you can create one by registering for the service.
