The BPIF says the results of a recent online survey suggest that 40 percent of printing companies are planning to implement the BPIF ISO 12647-2 Colour Quality Management Scheme in the next twelve months, after the certification body achieved UKAS accreditation of the scheme.
The survey also found that 35 percent of respondents would change their opinion about putting the scheme into practice following a certification body successfully gaining UKAS accreditation, and that over 60 percent of those polled required more information in order to decide on the standard.
"It is important that companies have the information available to help them make strategic business decisions about standards, just creating a new standard is not enough, in fact it can cause standard fatigue and a 'not another standard' mentality," says head of BPIF Business Philip Thompson.
"There are, as would be expected, early adopters who have either implemented or have made significant inroads in adopting this scheme. Additionally some companies already work to clearly defined colour management procedures.
"This scheme provides a framework that will support a business to obtain a fully independent scheme that was created to standardise and improve the consistency and quality of any printing company."
