One of the activities of the Center is the production of forensic examinations on the basis of definitions and decisions of judicial and investigative bodies. The center's forensic expertise fully meets the requirements of the current legislation of the Russian Federation. The University Charter provides for the possibility of independent implementation of financial and economic activities, including the production of expertise. The center is included in the list of expert organizations published on the official website of the Arbitration court of the Sverdlovsk region.


The most popular type of forensic examinations in the forensic activities of the Center is the technical examination of documents, in particular, the examination of the prescription of filling in the details in the documents. In determining the limitation of the execution of the details in the documents, the experts of the Centre apply the methodology approved by the Scientific-methodical Council of the FBU "Russian Federal Centre of judicial examination at Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation" according to which such examination is carried out using the aggregate technical, forensic and physical-chemical methods. The use of this method allows you to get more accurate results and conduct a forensic technical examination to establish the limitation period for completing the details in documents, even if there are no free samples for comparative research. When carrying out the examination of the prescription of the details in the documents, the Center's experts use a set of equipment based on the chromatograph Chromatek "Crystal 2000M", purchased by the Center in 2018. Verification of the equipment complex is regularly carried out by a representative of the manufacturer.


In 2018, the expert of the Center, Associate Professor of the Department of Criminalistics D.V. Bakhteev at the expense of the University underwent professional retraining at the Educational and Methodological Center for Special Psychophysiological Research "Expert" under the program "The use of a polygraph in the conduct of special psychophysiological research". In 2018, the Center purchased a professional computer polygraph "DIANA" (lie detector) to conduct special psychophysiological research.


One of the priorities of the Center is the use of professional knowledge and experience of experts in the educational process. In the course of practical classes, laboratory works and master classes, senior students of the University get acquainted with the methods of conducting forensic examinations of various types, study the structure of special equipment, as well as the principles of laboratory equipment.


On April 7, 2018, within the framework of the XVI International scientific conference of students and young scientists "the Evolution of Russian law", a leading expert of the Center A.V. Antopov gave a lecture on "the Practice of forensic technical examination of documents: a specialist's view".


The Center's experts take an active part in scientific conferences, symposia, seminars on forensic examinations. In particular, on June 6-8, 2018, the 18th Symposium of Document Research was held at the University of Wroclaw (Poland), in which forensic scientists from Russia, Belarus, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Malta, Pakistan, Poland, Serbia, the USA, Ukraine and other countries took part.
