Banknote reproduction rules

The reproduction of euro banknotes is not a liberalised activity and requires prior authorisation from the national central bank of the country in which the reproduction is to be made, or from the European Central Bank (ECB) if it is to be made in more than one country.

Exceptionally, reproductions which do not meet the established criteria may be accepted upon written request, as long as it is considered that the reproduction is not likely to be confused by the general public with a genuine euro banknote.

In the event that the banknotes do not meet the established requirements to be considered legal reproductions or that they do not have the agreed exemption by the national central bank or the European Central Bank, they shall be deemed unlawful and their production, possession, transportation, dissemination, sale, promotion, import into the European Union and use or attempted use for transactions is prohibited.
