Fundamentals of the Carded Program: Medeco's voucher and electronic controlled Card Programs Policies and Procedures (Levels II and V) are designed to ensure that users get the maximum key duplication protection and convenience, in addition to protection against physical attacks. Only users with an authorized card may obtain duplicate keys for their Medeco locks. These programs are also made to provide the assurance to the authorized cardholder that he or she is the only authorized agent able to request additional authorization cards for other users or to transfer the authorization to another in cases of the user leaving the business or institution. Key control programs that utilize a “credit card” type card to assist in proper authorization of duplicate keys include SKY, GLD, NUK, Patriot, Liberty, Gotham, DND and KeyMark Silver. Master Key Registry Card – an authorization card issued with a new Master Key system. The authorization card has the company name, address, authorized cardholder's name, and registry number embossed on it. The card pertains to groups of cylinders which are to be combinated so that all may be operated by their own change key(s) and by additional key(s) known as master key(s). Blind Code Card - an authorization card assigned to a particular key combination for future reference when additional keys or cylinders may be needed. Name Authorization Card – same as Blind Code Card except that an individual's name is personalized on the front of the authorization card to make the card unique. MK-120G - a form issued by Medeco to obtain additional authorization cards or to change authorization for a particular blind code or master key system to a different individual.
