The BPIF has launched Version 3 of its Colour Quality Management certification scheme. This is the document that has become the reference in the UK for certified compliance to ISO 12647-2. The latest version takes it away from those confines, to provide a much more flexible option that will encourage uptake for all types of printing companies.

The new scheme is now available for printers that can achieve Professional certifications, and for companies engaged in other print media production activities. The Elite certification is relevant for any organisation in the print media supply chain, including prepress houses and designers. A Professional level certification is obviously a jumpstart to achieving the Elite one.

Announcing the updated scheme’s availability, the BPIF’s boss Charles Jarrold said “all serious printers have implemented systems to control colour” but he went on to point out that today’s printing companies need to take a more commercial view of colour control. The new scheme is a tool to substantially enhance business performance and it may not be as exciting as twiddling with ink keys, but it is likely a far more powerful tool for business success.
