Zetes to continue supplying Belgian drivers’ licenses
Zetes will retain the contract for Belgian drivers’ licenses until 2023, after the country’s Federal Public Service (FPS) Mobility and Transport reaffirmed its confidence in the production, personalization and distribution of the identity documents.
The company began supplying the driving licenses in 2012, and is expected to issue roughly 800,000 of them for each of the next five years, according to the announcement.
“The very stringent quality of service requirements imposed on the suppliers of ID documents in Belgium drive Zetes to continually push back boundaries, find new solutions, and therefore: to innovate,” says Zetes CEO Alain Wirtz. “This fund of accumulated expertise is highly sought-after, and makes us one of the world’s most advanced players in the field of ID and travel documents. So we are delighted to have the privilege of continuing to supply driving licences to the people of Belgium for the next five years.”
Zetes says its bid guarantees high levels of quality and service continuity, with licenses delivered to towns 48 hours or less after a request.
The European Commission recently proposed requiring all national ID cards to include biometric data.
