Issuance (or Credential Issuance)- The process by which an issuing authority obtains and verifies information about a person, assigns one or more unique identifiers to the person, prepares information to be placed in or on a credential, produces a physical or data object credential, and delivers the finished credential to its subject. In the case of PIV Cards, issuance is performed only by accredited PCIs.
