Commission Enhances Security Features of Certificates

The British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission has announced the introduction of new, additionally secured certificates. All certificates issued by the BVI FSC will receive enhanced security features, with the purpose to minimise incidents of counterfeiting and to preserve authenticity of the official documents.

CEO and Managing Director of the Commission, Robert Mathavious said in his comments that the introduction of the new certificates was a timely initiative that will protect both the jurisdiction and the customers from forgery and illegal reproduction of official documents for illicit purposes.

The new certificates of the Commission will have blue or blue/green graded background, and will bear the logo of the Commission and the words ““Territory of the Virgin Islands.” There will be also other enhanced security features including anti-copy markings on the back of each certificate.
