With fakes and forgeries threatening trust and reputation in the global art market, Tagsmart has developed a unique, secure genetic “stamp” to identify, seal and verify the authenticity of artworks. Following an extensive collaboration between leading artists, surface chemists and conservators, every component of the Smart Tag is part of a complex web of security measures, using revolutionary label technology featuring the latest synthetic DNA taggants and inorganic compounds.

Each Smart Tag has its own unique reference number, linked to the artwork's secure Certificate of Authenticity and its digital counterpart and searchable online.
