Personalization of documents of the new generation with an electronic data carrier is carried out at two branches of the company – at the Main Personalization Center at the Moscow Printing Factory and the Multifunctional Personalization Center at the Moscow Printing Works.
The Main Personalization Center founded in 2006 processes up to 5 million biometric passports a year now.
In 2012, the Multifunctional Personalization Center was put into operation; it is an important segment of the state system of production, issue and control of passport and visa documents of the new generation founded at the Moscow Printing Works – Branch of Goznak.
The first lot of passports with the domestically-made microchip was produced and the process of personalization of passports with electronic data carriers and policies of the Obligatory Medical Insurance was mastered at the Multifunctional Center.
During the personalization process, personal data of the holder of a passport or another identification document are recorded to the microchip embedded into the plastic basis of the document.
