WASHINGTON — The Accredited Standards Committee X9, the national standards-setting body for the financial services industry, has issued a new standard for the use of biometric information.

The new standard defines the requirements for managing and securing biometric information, such as fingerprint, iris, and voice prints. It includes a set of control objectives that could be used by professional audit practitioners to validate biometric systems.

The standard was developed with other organizations, including the BioAPI Consortium, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Information Technology Laboratory, and the International Biometric Industry Association.
