// outputs 940323-2383

// outputs 940323
echo $id->format('ymd');

// outputs something like 25

Creating ID objects

Creating ID objects can be complicated.

  • A personal id can be a coordination id, if the individual identified is not a swedish citizen.
  • A corporation id can be a personal id if the corporation is registered with a single individual (egenföretagare).
  • A single individual company can use a coordination id if the individual is not a swedish citizen.
  • At times you may wish to process persons without a valid swedish personal id, using the FakeId implementation.

To solve these difficulties a decoratable set of factories is included. Create a factory with the abilities you need by chaining factory objects at creation time.

use byrokrat\id\PersonalIdFactory;
use byrokrat\id\CoordinationIdFactory;

$factory = new PersonalIdFactory(new CoordinationIdFactory);

$id = $factory->createId('940323-2383');

In this example the factory will first try to create a PersonalId, if this fails it will try to create a CoordinationId, if this fails it will throw an Exception.

The following factories are included:

Controlling the delimiter and century of ids containing dates

In order to controll the computation of dates you may specify at what time parsing takes place by passing a datetime object.

use byrokrat\id\PersonalIdFactory;

$factory = new PersonalIdFactory;

// Year interpreted as 2010 as parsing is done 2020
$young = $factory->createId('1001012382', new \DateTime('20200101'));

// Year interpreted as 1910 as parsing is done 1990
$older = $factory->createId('1001012382', new \DateTime('19900101'));

// outputs 2010
echo $young->format('Y');

// outputs 1910
echo $older->format('Y');

Specifying parse date also affects what delimiter is used.

use byrokrat\id\PersonalIdFactory;

$factory = new PersonalIdFactory;

// Delimiter is '+' as parsing is done in 2050
$id = $factory->createId('194001079120', new \DateTime('20500101'));

// outputs 400107+9120
echo $id;


Ids can be printed in custom formats using the format() method, where $formatStr is a mix of format tokens and non-formatting characters (for a list of formatting tokens se below).

echo $id->format($formatStr);

If you need to format a large number of ids a formatter object can be created.

use byrokrat\id\Formatter\Formatter;
use byrokrat\id\PersonalId;

$formatter = new Formatter('y');

// outputs 82
echo $formatter->format(new PersonalId('940323-2383'));

Formatting tokens

Characters that are not formatting tokens are returned as they are by the formatter.

Token Description
C Century, 2 digits (00 if not applicable)
S Part of serial number before delimiter, 6 digits
- Date and control string delimiter (- or +)
s Part of serial number after delimiter, 3 digits
k Check digit
X Sex, F, M or O (empty if not applicable)
L Legal form (empty if not applicable)
B Birth county (empty if not applicable)
\ Escape the following character
The following tokens are only valid for ids containing a date
A Current age
Y A full numeric representation of a year, 4 digits
y A two digit representation of a year
m Numeric representation of a month, with leading zeros, 2 digits
n Numeric representation of a month, without leading zeros, 1 through 12
F A full textual representation of a month, such as January or March
M A short textual representation of a month, three letters, Jan through Dec
t Number of days in the given month 28 through 31
W ISO-8601 week number of year, weeks starting on Monday
d Day of the month, 2 digits with leading zeros
j Day of the month without leading zeros, 1 to 31
l (lowercase 'L') A full textual representation of the day of the week
D A textual representation of a day, three letters Mon through Sun
w Numeric representation of the day of the week 0 (for Sunday) through 6
N ISO-8601 numeric representation of the day of the week 1 (for Monday) through 7
z The day of the year (starting from 0), 0 through 365
