BPIF Colour Quality Management Certification Scheme
PMC’s leading edge certification for the BPIF colour quality management certification scheme is the new benchmark for colour quality in print.

The BPIF's scheme is designed to combine a quality management system with the requirements of colour quality standards, like ISO 12647, to ensure colour quality on a consistent and ongoing basis. Colour Quality certification is therefore not just an "MOT" on a single item of print, but a guarantee of ongoing colour quality to the industry's customers.
