• An electronic logbook can be created for individual operators – showing which machines they have operated, for how long and where.
• Smartcard systems can be integrated for industry-wide coverage.
• The Smart PAL Card will continue to have security features, such as the cardholder’s photo, signature and an IPAF logo printed as a hologram.
