Among these measures include the installation of cameras. In addition, “cash handlers and service providers tasked to refill ATMs are trained to detect counterfeit banknotes or verify their genuineness before placing them in ATMs.”

Banks are required to submit suspicious banknotes to the BSP for further examination under BSP Circular No. 829, Series of 2014.
