About

Scope

Standardization of terminology, test methods and specifications in the field of printing and graphic technology from the original provided to finished products.

The scope includes in particular:

  • composition;
  • reproduction;
  • printing processes;
  • finishing (for example binding);
  • suitability of inks, substrates and other materials used in graphic technology.

Note:

Printing is defined here as a process of reproduction involving the transfer of a medium either coloured or not (ink, etc.) to a substrate, using a relief, planographic, intaglio, stencil or other image element.
