*The basic purpose of the PAS 820:2012 document is to overcome the difficulties that purchasers could encounter with assessing the length of time a forensic code will continue to be identifiable, and should help those making purchasing decisions to assess this aspect of a product. Forensic marking products are used to link items to an owner or place, or a suspect to stolen goods at the scene of a crime. They can also be deployed to protect equipment, metal, cables, personal property (such as jewelry, computers and mobile phones), commercial assets, inventory/stock, banknotes and safety-critical parts.
