Authenticity verification equipment

The following table contains the list of equipment for checking the authenticity of banknotes that has been subjected to tests by the Banco de España to determine its ability to recognise counterfeit euro banknotes. The results of the tests may help clients to select appropriate counterfeit detection equipment.

It should be taken into account that the equipment shown in the list is not considered to be equipment for recycling banknotes. Therefore it cannot be used by credit institutions or other institutions engaged in handling cash as a professional activity to carry out automated checks on the authenticity of euro banknotes with a view to redistributing them though ATMs or other devices for distributing banknotes used by the client.
