RIT Launches Printing Standards Survey
In the first phase of its plan to develop and offer process audits and certification services to North American printers, Rochester Institute of Technology has launched a Web-based survey to determine the extent printers conform to well-defined printing standards. Industry leaders have urged RIT to become a certification body in North America because of the void in the area of standards and process conformance.
Participants will take an online survey, download test forms, conduct a press run and submit printed sheets to RIT for a free “check-up.” The online survey and free press sheet check-up are available until June 30. To take the survey, download the test form for the free conformance “check-up” and learn more about the printing standards audit, use the link below.
The purpose of the survey is to find out the awareness of international printing standards as well as the conformance ability among printers worldwide. There is no geographic restriction as to who is eligible to participate. Initially, two international printing standards (Fogra39 and GRACoL 2006) will be offered as aim points.
The survey is consisted of a registration, questionnaire, test form download, and a free printing check-up. Here's the link to the Printing Standards Survey: http://printlab.rit.edu/psa/
