This report considers the presence of fraud in deposit refund systems (DRS) and how this can be mitigated.

As with most systems that handle large amounts of money DRS are open to the potential of fraud. This document explores:

  • A summary of the problem and measures to mitigate risk of fraud;
  • Detailed explanation of how fraud can occur along with measures to detect and mitigate;
  • Overview of how technology can support in fraud prevention, providing examples of how technology is used in different jurisdictions; and
  • Key takeaways for consideration when current systems are modernized or new systems are introduced in North America.

The report provides examples of both North American and European systems, outlining the fraud detection and prevention measures and technology available used in these systems.
