The future of commercial printing industry will depend on its ability to adapt to the new market realities. Very soon, working to standards will become a requirement for all printers seeking clients beyond their neighborhood, as is the case for most manufacturing and production industries.
More than 400 printers are currently compliant to PSO/ISO 12647 and dozens are joining the list every month worldwide.
There are 3 steps to succcess.
1. ISO 12647 Gap Analysis Audit: The audit of the printer workflow and production system allows them to identify conformities and areas of improvements in the print house.
This audit consists of a comprehensive questionnaire, guidelines and testforms that need to be proofed and printed on production equipment to be assessed.
2. ISO 12647 Implementation: Gap Analysis Audit Report and ISO 12647 Implementation toolkit will allow you to implement ISO standards internally or with the help of an external consultant.
3 ISO 12647 Certification: An independent accredited auditor will conduct the audit and tests.
Colour Engine and Alwan Technologies help acheive the standards and work with a numbers of organisations and consultants.
