Proven banknote recirculation standards

The modular & innovative CI Note Line product family possesses the latest ECB authentication and fitness check for recirculation of banknotes according to the ECB/2010/14 decision.

The check comprises the following two main criteria:

  • Authenticity: ECB Article 5 of decision no. ECB/2010/14 ensures that the devices withdraw from circulation all euro notes received by them which they know or have sufficient reason to believe to be counterfeit.

  • Fitness: ECB Article 6 of decision no. ECB/2010/14 requires an acceptable tolerance level for the fitness checks by banknote handling machines of 5% within 12 various sorting criteria for all Euro denomination-series. This means that a maximum of 5% of the euro banknotes that do not meet the fitness criteria may be misclassified by the machines and sorted as fit.
