The right use for registry offices
Many registry offices, for which our security document paper WITH eagle has proven its worth in the printing of civil status documents, do not want to do without copy protection for register printouts and transcripts in the future. Our new security paper WITHOUT eagle is now available for these printouts. It has the same copy protection and is also without optical brighteners.
The printouts in registry offices can be divided into 2 categories:
1. civil status documents (according to Annexes 6-9 and 13 to the PStV).
For these printouts, the stylised image of an eagle in the background is mandatory in the PStV.
Recommendation: Security paper WITH eagle watermark and copy protection.
2. register printouts and transcripts (according to annexes 2-5 and 10-12 of the PStV).
The PStV does not provide for an eagle in the background of these printouts.
Recommendation: Security paper WITHOUT eagle, only with copy protection.
On our leaflet on the correct use of security papers in the registry office, you will find further information as well as an overview of the designs and formats.
