Security Features

Laser Check Security Features 

All Relyco stock laser checks — including ULTRACHEK® Laser Checks, BASICHEK® Laser Checks, MAGNACHEK® Laser Checks, PROCHEK Laser Checks, FUTURACHEK® Laser Checks, DETERACHEK® Laser Checks and ULTRASEAL Pressure Seal Checks — are designed with security features that prevent tampering and forgery to ensure a secure financial transaction.

Relyco is a member of the ANSI ASC X9AB Check Processing Subcommittee. To comply with the ANSI standards for check processing security, all checks must have at least three security features and at least one security feature must cover each of four areas:

  • One must be overt, such as an endorsement warning, warning band or non-negotiable stub backer
  • One must be covert, such as copy-void, fluorescent fibers or solvent reactive chemical stain
  • One must be anti-copy or designed to hinder duplication
  • One must be anti-alteration or designed to deter data modification

The security feature types can overlap; for example, microprinting is both a covert feature and an anti-copy feature, and diagonal anti-splice lines are both overt and anti-alteration.
