Newly registered touring caravans will soon benefit from an ultra-secure CRiS registration document.
The hi-tech document will be released in March 2016 and includes lots of hidden features, including UV fibres embedded on to thermochromic paper.
There’s also a VIN Chip QR code and full security bonded raised hologram – making it even more difficult to forge or alter.
Simply shine a UV torch onto the document and keep safe card to reveal the CRiS and NCC logos – like something out of a James Bond movie! The card also incorporates the unique QR code.
The registration document is fully marked and also includes a secure colour name and address area.
Sean Bailey, Managing Director of CRiS, reassured caravan owners that there had not been any forgery or fraud issues with the current registration document, which was introduced in 2013.
“We’re always looking at ways to improve and we simply wanted to make the already highly secure document even better by taking advantage of the new technologies that we are using with some of our other security products, such as VIN CHIP,” added Sean.
Other invisible and hidden security features within the registration document and card will only be revealed to law enforcement agencies throughout Europe.
CRiS helps prevent and deter caravan crime and acts as a security check for buyers. To find out more about visit www.cris.co.uk
