Every day, your identification documents face a variety of threats. Normal wear and tear takes its toll, as well as exposure to harsh environmental conditions or chemicals.

A Multi-Layer Approach to Security

Our recommendation for a secure design is a logical combination of level I, II and III security elements to ensure the highest level of security against counterfeiting and alterations.

Level I – Overt
Visible or tactile features which can be detected without the use of tools or aids.

Level II – Covert
Concealed features that can be seen by a trained inspector using simple tools, such as a UV light or a magnifying glass.

Level III – Forensic
Deeply hidden features which are detectable only through forensic inspections.
