SSEF Report Check (MySSEF)

We are constantly developing innovative services for the benefit of the gemstone and jewellery trade and are delighted to announce the launch of fraud resistant SSEF reports, further increasing the security of our documents.


As of June 1st 2009, all reports issued by the Swiss Gemmological Institute SSEF carry a label of authentication. This MySSEF/Prooftag label contains a fraud resistant bubble tag that can only be used once and is impossible to reproduce. The owner of an SSEF report with a tag can check its authenticity online. This innovation adds another layer to the security already provided using signature, seal and lamination.

To check the authenticity of an SSEF report


  • Go to
  • Enter the 13 digits of the SSEF-Prooftag label reference on your report
  • Enter the digits of your SSEF report
  • Compare the bubble tag image on your certificate to that on your screen. If they are the same, the report is authentic
  • Compare the pdf copy of the report to your report





 If you require further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us directly. Please note that this verification system only applies to an original SSEF report and not to a copy. By using this unique label of authenticity on our SSEF reports, we are confident that our clients will benefit from our continuing commitment to the highest possible standards of service.
