ISO 7810

This international standard defines the size of the smartcards. The ‘credit card’ format (86x54mm) is called ID-1. A smaller format has been introduced for SIM cards (used in mobile phone) or SAM (secure authentication module, used for payment or transport applications) and is called ID-000. Bigger formats are ID-2 for ID-cards and ID-3 for passports.
