Machines and software that meet our standard
Every month, we publish an updated list of models and software versions that meet our standards. Businesses can use it to make informed choices about the equipment they use.
Manufacturers often update the software in their machines for a new banknote design or to make authentication improvements. If you are a business owner or operate a machine, you can check you are using the correct version of software or firmware.
We test a sample model only and not every machine that is manufactured. Please be aware of the limits of our testing (these are set out in section 9 of our framework).
If we have not listed a manufacturer or model you are aware of, please contact us at email@example.com.
The current list of machines and software versions that have met the standard can be downloaded below. This now combines the results of both the Bank of England and the Scottish and Northern Ireland banknote testing in one place for ease of use.
