Dr. S C Mittal, Executive Director, Premier Forensic Science Institute, provides learning sessions on Questioned Document

Documents feature prominently in all manner of business and personal affairs. Almost any type of document may become disputed in an investigation or litigation. For example, a questioned document may be a sheet of paper bearing handwriting or mechanically-produced text such as a ransom note, a forged cheque or a business contract. Or it may be some material not normally thought of as a ‘document’. FDEs define the word “document” in a very broad sense as being any material bearing marks, signs or symbols intended to convey a message or meaning to someone.

Examinations and comparisons conducted by document examiners can be quite diverse and may involve any of the following:

  • Handwriting (cursive / printing) and Signatures
  • Typewriters, Photocopiers, Laser printers, Ink Jet Printers, Fax machines
  • Chequewriters, Rubber stamps, Price markers, Label makers
  • Printing Processes
  • Ink, Pencil, Paper
  • Alterations, additions, erasures, obliterations
  • Indentation detection and/or decipherment
  • Sequence Determination
  • Physical Matching

A trainee must learn how to present evidence before the court in clear, forceful testimony. Fledgling examiners in the later stages of training can get a glimpse into the legal process as well as a better sense of this aspect of their work through participation in a mock trial or by attending actual court hearings to observe the testimony of qualified examiners. These are guidelines and not requirements.
