Remote Authenticity Verification of Documents

Clone Your Best Forensic Experts

Free your forensic experts from the need to be physically present at border checkpoints

Transform the Conventional Border Control Process

Highly professional forensic experts are an integral part of the document authenticity verification procedures that are required at border control checkpoints. However, the presence of forensic experts at every minor checkpoint is economically unprofitable and irrational in terms of human resources.

For instance, there are around 330 points of entry throughout the USA: seaports, airports, and land crossings. Every year, this number is growing, as more and more travelers necessitate more ports of entry. Naturally, this increases the necessity to ensure security.

With such a large number of checkpoints, the best solution is to implement remote authenticity verification procedures. Regional border checkpoints can transfer document images to forensic experts stationed at one or more central laboratories, which can be anywhere in the world. There, forensic experts can decide on the validity of a particular document by examining a digitized version. However, such analysis requires a powerful device that can precisely capture images in various light sources and send them along with the image capture parameters. In this case, the high-resolution photospectral scanner Regula 8880 will come in handy. It captures high-quality images at a resolution of 3401 ppi in white, UV, and IR light sources, and stores metadata about the image capture parameters.

What Our Customers Say


"The remote border control system by Regula facilitates second-line document authenticity verification and contributes to the efficient allocation of high-level forensic expert resources. It also enhances the overall security of border crossings. In the near future, we are planning to build up a whole chain of border checkpoints that can perform this type of document verification. We are pleased to have been the first ones to challenge themselves to try out such a smart change in the border security sector"

Jimmy Dario Plazas Barahona Office of the Attorney General, Colombia

"As a user of the comparator Regula 4308, I've discovered numerous advantages in operating this equipment.One standout feature is the ability to adjust the height of the top camera, which allows for greater amplitude and facilitates the examination of specific document properties. Additionally, the Regula database is highly comprehensive and loaded with images in different light sources and valuable information about documents. Spectrometer handling is simple and effective which streamlines the examination of checks and allows for detailed analysis aimed to detect possible irregularities or forgeries. I also appreciate that the Regula 4308 has an integrated computer, so I only need a monitor to work efficiently. In addition to these advantages, the Regula 4308 also offers features that are highly beneficial for my work. For example, it has a 3D module that allows me to perform examinations of strokes when analyzing signatures. And it is invaluable in my authentication tasks. The comprehensive set of functions and light sources provided by the video spectral comparator eliminates the need for other devices—now I carry out all investigations with just the Regula 4308. Finally, I would like to highlight the exceptional technical support offered by the Regula company. They provide us with direct and competent assistance, which is essential for resolving any issues we may have"
