These certificates are issued with a Secure Verification Code (CSV), so that the Tax Administrations of the countries receiving them may check their veracity, through the AEAT's electronic office. The procedure for checking the certificate with the CSV is explained in detail in an annex to the certificate itself, both in Spanish and English (see attachment).
