Abstract

The Fingerprint Source Book is primarily intended to provide the background and validation for the techniques currently (up to 2016) recommended by the Home Office Centre for Applied
Science and Technology (CAST), and to publish, in some cases for the first time, data collected over 45 years of research. It will therefore often present information in an ‘CASTcentric’ way, emphasising research that was carried out at Sandridge or Horseferry House, possibly sometimes at the expense of research carried out elsewhere. It is not the intention of
the authors to ignore the significant contributions made by other research groups and apologies are made in advance if this sometimes appears to be the case. The document is
also aimed at providing the UK Forensic Science Regulator and the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), which has carried out ISO 17025 accreditation in the UK, with the background evidence behind the advice given in the Fingermark Visualisation Manual.
