Will test material continue to be available now that the Next Generation Banknote program has come to an end?

We will continue to make test material available to machine manufacturers and owners for future machine testing. The test material currently consists of a range of counterfeits across all denominations and quality levels, which have been retained for the purposes of testing. Other test material will be made available, as required.

How can I access test material?

Test material is accessed under the Agreement for Loans of Banknote Materials to Banknote Users for Testing/Research Purposes. To access the test material please contact the Industry Engagement team who will guide you through the process.
