This document specifies requirements for a low 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. Failure to conform to specified criteria is negotiated between the involved parties.

Identification cards, such as credit cards, employee ID cards, and even hotel keycards, despite appearing as simple thin objects that you can slide into your wallet, encompass a vast range of complex technologies that assure their performance and security. The reliability of the various facets of identification cards are provided by international standards and often physically observable on the cards themselves. Magnetic stripes are also crucial components of identification cards.
Low coercivity magnetic stripes generally are brown, and they are encoded at a low-intensity magnetic field, around Oersted Oe. Because they are encoded at a low-intensity magnetic field, LoCo cards are typically used for short-term applications. This includes hotel room keys and season passes for theme parks, amusement parks, and water parks. It takes into human and machine considerations and outlines the physical characteristics of the magnetic stripe, surface roughness, adhesion of stripe to card, resistance to chemicals, performance characteristics, and related information.
