Document Challenge II

The Document Challenge II was developed as a practical exercise simulating document inspection in the first line of border control, organised by the Frontex Research and Development Unit (RDU) in cooperation with the UK National Document Fraud Unit, the Forensic Science Institute of the German Bundeskriminalamt (BKA), the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, and the Portuguese Immigration and Borders Service (SEF) and with the support of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). Two hundred and thirteen documents, seven document inspection systems and thirty-nine border control officers deployed in the context of Frontex coordinated Joint Action Lusitania participated in the exercise.
The main objective was to examine document inspection performance (by both humans and machines) in the first line of border control, aiming to better understand the complexity of the task of detecting false/falsified travel documents.
