Online verification - only old security labels

How to verify that the printed code is valid:

Verification at a glance

Compare the digits of the random code to the VeoMark information:

- Do the last 6 digits match the serial number on the VeoMark?

- Do the last 2 digits match the LensCode? The LensCode becomes visible when you place the included special filter over the label and rotate it.

1) HDI star (High Definition Image) for high-resolution copy protection

2) MAHLE logo in shimmering rainbow colors (most easily visible when the VeoMark is held up to a direct, artificial light source)

3) LensCode (= the last 2 digits of the random code)—becomes visible with the special filter

4) Serial number (black, outlined in shimmering rainbow colors)—corresponds to the last 6 digits of the random code

An additional security feature: the security strip

The security strip is affixed across the opening flaps of goods packed in Europe and serves as a seal. When the security strip is pulled off, the word "OPEN" becomes visible.
