Note Printing Australia


Note Printing Australia (NPA) is a high security printer that cares deeply about the well-being of the people and nations that use its banknotes and passports.  As a 100% subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of Australia, NPA has built its policies and business processes around the highest standards of integrity and ethics while delivering banknotes and passports on-time, on-budget, and to the highest quality.

NPA brings what it describes as a Spirit of High Security in its attitude to understanding and addressing specific challenges and problems to create superior banknote and passport solutions for customers.  This culture and track record is based on a history of innovation delivered while printing more than 10 billion polymer banknotes and producing more than 25 million biometrically-enabled ePassports.

Across the last decade, NPA has invested for the future and today has one of the world’s most advanced high security print lines, the capability of which is evident with Australia’s new Next Generation Banknote series and the current Australian P Series range of travel documents.

NPA is located in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and is home to the world’s most unique high security printing precinct with all parts of the banknote and ePassport production processes located in the single site.
