This varies through different versions... Mark 4 are coming up with nothing helpful:thumbsup:
Should be a label attached to the plug/wire with its authenticity on it and a number - check the number with the GHD website. They will confirm if they are genuine or not with that number.

No - you can use either the hologram code on the cord or the actual plates themselves either can be verified at the website as they are all registered:-

"The holograms bear Authenticity Verification Codes (AVCs), which are a series of 3 blocks, each of 5 characters, both numbers, and letters in upper and lower cases. All AVCs are different. The AVCs on iron and box, or iron and power cord label - can therefore never match, as each AVC is unique. These AVCs are individually registered with Schreiner. If an owner of a ghd iron visits the ghd website (there is only one: [url]www.ghdhair.com[/url]), they can click on a link titled 'Hologram Verification' (in the section 'Product Registration'). There, you type in your AVC (from iron, box/power cord label, or each) to confirm the authenticity of your ghd product.

Initially, a hologram sticker was fitted to the inner face of the iron lower casing - where it remains today - the second to the bottom face of the box sleeve. The box hologram was subsequently enlarged to include a barcode. This is a 'Track and Trace' feature, which, when scanned by ghd, enables them to trace which of their Distributors (formerly approx 15 in UK, now only approx 6) was supplied with that iron for onward trade sale to ghd-accredited hair salons in their geographical regions. "


Hope this helps!
