MDP Specification

Material Digital Passport will require 3 main elements to function:

  • Marking technology Physical identifier which will create the link to the digital ID
  • Digital ID through the form of GUID which will ensure that each party in the value chain knows they are referring to the same piece of equipment/passport and gives a unique address to locate the ledger of record.
  • Distributed Ledger Technology in an open version to store proofs of all information transactions along with timestamps and actors on the ledger throughout the equipment lifecycle

Decentralised Digital Passport

This definition phase of MDP specification has started in 2022 through a consortium led by Shell who initiated project for decentralised digital passport, a first MVP of MDP. IOGP JIS01 (Joint Industry Sprint 01) is currently working to publish a first release of MDP specification by the end of 2023.
