INTERPOL to Field Test Document Forensic Technology

A new protocol in forensic examinations to detect potential forged or faked documents is to be field-tested by INTERPOL member countries following successful laboratory trials.Dev

eloped by INTERPOL’s Counterfeit and Security Documents branch in partnership with the International Academy for Handwriting and Documents (L’Académie Internationale des Experts en Ecriture et Documents – AIEED) the protocol is aimed at providing a solution to identify when a signature or piece of writing was done.

Shared with participants at a two-day workshop this month on physical-chemistry study of line crossings, the “Proof of concept” which was established following a year-long forensic analysis of the protocol carried out by laboratories in 13 countries, is now to be tested in the field with the aim of training forensic document examiners to assist in fraud or forgery investigations.

Although one of the most frequently requested forensic document examinations is to date a signature or writing, there are currently no reliable techniques for dating ink on paper.
