Abstract: The verification of a travel document authenticity is the cornerstone of border checks. Because of pressures at the border (time constraints and increasing numbers of travellers to check) and the growing complexity of modern document security, border control capabilities (officers and/or automated systems) are tasked to rapidly and straightforwardly decide on whether the documents presented are genuine or false. Although operational performance of document inspection capabilities is of paramount importance for the effectiveness and security of border checks, the topic is rarely discussed and studied. The purpose of this article is to contribute to the development of a methodology to assess the operational performance of document inspection capabilities (human and technical) by reporting on the findings of the Document Challenge II, the second exercise of this sort performed in Lisbon in September 2013 and organized by Frontex in cooperation with the Portuguese Servico de Estrangeiros e Fronteiras (SEF), the UK National Document Fraud Unit (NDFU), the Dutch Royal Marechaussee and the German Forensic Institute of the Bundeskriminalamt (BKA).
