This document specifies requirements for a high coercivity magnetic stripe including any protective overlay on an identification card, the encoding technique and coded character sets. It takes into consideration both human and machine aspects and states minimum requirements. Coercivity influences many of the quantities specified in this document but is not itself specified. The main characteristic of the high coercivity magnetic stripe is its improved resistance to erasure.

Identification should be straightforward, but it confronts a world of complexities. Used for financial transactions, day-to-day business activities, or an assortment of other purposes, identification cards e. Most identification card components are visible on the cards themselves and are reflected in international standards. Magnetic stripes are also characteristic of credit cards and other identification cards.
The card component often responsible for its actual use, the design of magnetic stripes needs to take into account a range of both human and machine aspects. High coercivity magnetic stripe cards are typically black and are encoded with a stronger magnetic field—around Oersted Oe. The stronger magnetic field makes HiCo cards more durable, so they are common in applications that require a longer card life and need to be swiped more often.
For example, high coercivity magnetic stripes are commonly used in credit cards, bank cards, library cards, access control cards, time and attendance cards, and employee ID cards. It outlines the physical characteristics of the magnetic stripe, surface roughness, adhesion of stripe to card, resistance to chemicals, performance characteristics, and related information.
