ISO 12647 Certification
PMC is the only accredited certification body for ISO 12647 in the UK. PMC’s leading edge certification for the BPIF ISO 12647 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 ISO 12647 to ensure colour quality on a consistent and ongoing basis. ISO 12647 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. Read More.
