Re: Stdnum: Mauritian national identifier number

Hi Arthur

Apologies for only getting back to you now, I've been on leave, both vacation and sick. 

I've attached the document I received from the IT advisor in government, which is what I'm working off of.

I did find one place where the validation in your algorithm does not
match the validation that is performed on

Your algorithm says that the (randomly generated) number that starts
with M220635747478 should have an H as check digit while the URL above
only accepts the number with a 0 at the end.

Do you known which is correct?

Having public information on the validation would be helpful for this,
as well as a real test-set.

Kind regards,
