New ASIC and MSIC design

The Australian Government is planning to introduce changes to the ASIC and MSIC including:

  • a new card design; and
  • a new tamper evident laminate overlay, replacing the current Kinegram. 

These changes will ensure the ASIC and MSIC are easier to read and authenticate while making them more resistant to unauthorised tampering or replication.

More information will be available in the coming months.
