Security Document World - Day 2: Document Design and Integrity
"The impact of fraudulent documents detection on the design of id. and travel documents"
The synergy between the Identity and Travel documents Issuance Authority and the manufacturer must be fluid and constant. Only by sharing learned lessons from the control of documents at the border with the manufacturer can be obtained robust products that make difficult the alteration of id documents to counterfeiters.
Talking about the Spanish State, this is done constantly and that allows that counterfeits of official id documents, and especially the Spanish e-ID, are minimal and easily detectable at the border.
FNMT-RCM as manufacturer of Spanish id documents merges its experience and technology with the experience of the Spanish Police and with the results of its Laboratory in which tests on documents are carried out, to give rise to innovative products that are difficult to imitate.
