Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), in particular the Europol Forensics Laboratory, has been accredited against the criteria of the International Standard ISO/IEC 17020 for the forensic examination of banknotes.

The certificate of accreditation was handed over to the Director of Europol by Jan van der Poel, Chief Executive of the Dutch Accreditation Council RvA.

Europol views this accreditation as a willingness to open its doors to external auditors who can objectively assess the agency’s impartiality, competence and expertise in the field of forensic examinations.
