European Central Bank (ECB) Approval

Which ITL validators are ECB approved?

Innovative Technology Ltd. (ITL) are pleased to announce independent approval from the European Central Bank (ECB) for their note validator (NV) range. The ECB authenticate validators that successfully recognise the difference between genuine and counterfeit Euro banknotes. ITL’s NV9 USB+, NV10 USB+, NV200 and NV200 Spectral all received a 100% pass rate during testing last month at De Nederlandsche Bank in Amsterdam. 


Damian Roach, Test Currency Engineer, conducted the test in Amsterdam, “Once again, we are proud to have passed the ECB’s strict testing process. The results independently acknowledge the reliability of our note validator range for their ability to identify genuine Euro notes and reject counterfeits. Our products were tested with the latest version of SPF™ technology and all passed 100%. We are constantly developing our global currency dataset files, adding new issue notes and known frauds, to ensure we maintain our leading acceptance rates across our note validator range.”


The test results are published to help manufactures choose the counterfeit detection equipment most suitable for their needs. The full listing of the test results can be found on the ECB’s website.
