Can water or something else damage my ID-card?

We have the following recommendations aimed at ensuring that your ID card/digi-ID with the microchip serve you for as long as possible:
  • Protect the ID card from abrupt temperature fluctuations, radiation, moisture and long exposure to direct sunlight as these factors can damage the microchip.• Do not twist or bend the ID card as the card/microchip can get damaged (for instance, keeping the card in the rear trouser pocket can result in the card becoming bent or scratched).
  • Protect the ID card from coming into contact with sharp objects. Make sure that the card does not come into contact with metals objects (for instance: keys, wallet buckle, etc.).
  • Protect the ID card from water, chemical substances and their vapours, ionising, ultraviolet and roentgen radiation and electrical charges. Do not place the card in a strong magnetic field. If moisture gets on the ID card, you must wipe the microchip dry as soon as possible.
