How Banknote Watch and its members can help

Banknote Watch can assist the Police in the following ways:

  • Initial identification of manufacturer, based on verbal description of stain and circumstances of recovery
  • Direct contact details of all the major manufacturers and end-users of cash degradation systems
  • Provision of chemical components of all major manufacturers stains, held centrally by Banknote Watch
  • Provision of the lists of chemicals used in smoke-dye devices and reagents used in the immersion in chemicals test, the injection of chemicals test and the permanence test included in the British Standards Institution PAS 40, held centrally by Banknote Watch
  • Full back-up support and ongoing advice

Manufacturers can then provide full details of chemical components, note cipher numbers if recorded, and details of activations where known. Following forensic analysis, manufacturers will also provide controlled samples and witness statements in the event of a prosecution.
