Support For Successful Implementation

As well as providing support for the planning and design stages of a transition to polymer banknotes, CCL Secure provides expert support for the implementation stage, based on decades of experience of successful launches in countries around the world.


We can advise on a wide range of production processes, from plate making to substrate and note proofing, specifications, tooling, materials, overcoating and finishing. Other areas in which issuing authorities can benefit from our experience and expertise include quality testing, analysis, storage, health and safety, and security processes.

Setting quality standards

Our experts can work with issuing authorities to develop and implement note quality standards for notes in circulation, develop systems that monitor note quality, and advise on the pro-active management of the quality of the notes in circulation, including programmes to evaluate the performance of polymer banknotes once they are in circulation.

Currency operations, work systems and processes

We can review existing work systems and processes – with a focus on efficiency – and recommend any changes or enhancements that would be appropriate. In addition, we can advise on the destruction and recycling of polymer notes. The Guardian™ Global Recycling Program helps to reduce central banks’ and banknote printers’ carbon footprint and provides a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution to dispose of unfit banknotes and polymer substrate waste
