What are the security features of the DBS ID Card?
All cards come with guilloche (fine line design). The complex design is extremely difficult to originate and print. It has an APCS reflective foil for added security against copying. The photos are processed and printed and become an integral part of the card. They are encapsulated under a top laminate which also has a unique design, making for a highly secure, durable and tamper proof Photo ID Card.
How do I verify that an APCS DBS ID Card is genuine?
If a client wishes to check the credentials on the card, all they need to do is call us and we will provide the relevant information from our database to confirm the applicant has completed the appropriated check.
How much is an APCS DBS ID Card, and how do I order it?
