The FRAUDOC – Guidelines on Diploma Mills and Document Fraud for Credential Evaluators funded by ERASMUS + is a project that wants to further inform the experts working on the evaluation of foreign higher education qualifications, students, colleges and the general public on the frequency of false diplomas or fraudulent documents and also offers guidelines for the quality evaluation of document authenticity.

The project involved the following institutions: CIMEA, Italy - Project Coordinator, NARIC-Vlaanderen, Belgium, Danish Agency for Higher Education, Denmark, Archimedes Foundation, Estonia, DGES - Unit for Recognition, Mobility and International Cooperation, Portugal, Swedish Council for Higher Education, Sweden.

  • Guide on Diploma Mills and Dubious Institutions - intended for anyone working on the evaluation of foreign qualifications

  • FRAUDOC - Handbook on Document Fraud for Credential Evaluators - this instrument is created for the benefit of ENIC-NARIC centres only. Thanks to this shared tool, the ENIC-NARIC centres will be able to be conscious about this phenomenon and to develop innovative instruments and procedures to detect fraudulent qualifications. Real cases on counterfeit qualifications will be collected and presented, analyzing all the technics and instruments used to create these, providing some concrete suggestions to tackle the phenomenon and to identify fraudulent documents.
