Due to the digital revolution, governments had to incorporate different anti-counterfeit elements to tax stamps. These elements, combined together, make it extremely difficult for counterfeiters to reproduce.
Tax stamps might not have been created with anti-counterfeit strategies in mind, but now, looking back at its history, one could say that the start of anti-counterfeit solutions grew from the need to collect taxes and stop illicit trade.
U-NICA’s multi-layered anti-counterfeit strategy is based on the security level pyramid. This pyramid has three anti-counterfeit protection levels, or layers, which governments implement into tax stamps.
The first level is the most obvious security measure because it can be verified by the human senses such as through sight or touch.
This next security layer is geared specifically for simple devices making authentication by the naked human eye impossible. Consumers might see the anti-counterfeit element, but they won’t be able to verify it.
The last anti-counterfeit level is the strictest and only reserved for government use. This layer involves the use of actual forensic tools, such as laboratory equipment, to verify the tax stamp.
