The AMC standard explained, in 2 minutes!

The Citizen Multiservice Application standard is explained briefly and clearly in this short animated video.

In June 2016, as a result of ADCET's work, the French National Standardization Commission validated experimental standard status for the AMC (Citizen Multiservice Application).

The standard's AFNOR reference number is XP 99-508.
ADCET originated the standard, and is in charge of its development. We provide governance of the common AMC, and as such are a signatory of the usage agreement. We also manage the cryptographic keys and registries. In addition, we provide services to facilitate the development of the AMC, such as:
  • Trainings/webinars.
  • Support and assistance with project implementation.
  • Certification of common AMC media.
Every entity, no matter what its position in the value chain, must sign a usage agreement in order to use the common AMC standard. Any medium that incorporates the standard must comply with the style guide.

What does it do?

The standard describes a technical framework for the management of regional services (local authorities, universities, etc.) using a single medium (card, mobile phone, etc.).
It is mainly used for the following purposes:
  • extracurricular activities and preschool services,
  • dining,
  • sports and leisure facilities,
  • cultural events and tourism,
  • parking,
  • loyalty rewards for downtown shopping,
  • monitoring physical and digital access, etc.

Who can use it?

The standard is already being used by many regional authorities throughout France:
  • the Paris region,
  • Brittany and the city of Rennes,
  • the city of Bordeaux,
  • Greater Lyon,
  • Greater Poitiers,
  • the Normandy region,
  • the city of Lille,
  • Greater Avignon,
  • Basque Country,
  • Strasbourg,
  • and more.
