Intergraf's Committee of Experts

Written by Thursday, 12 January 2017 13:13
Intergraf's Committee of Experts
What makes Security Printers different?

Security Printers draws on the vast experience and knowledge of a dedicated Committee of Experts, composed of senior banknotes and security documents professionals from the industry and law enforcement. Appointed by Intergraf, they overview the preparation and delivery of each conference and exhibition.

Our Committee Members meet regularly throughout the year to make Security Printers a rewarding experience. Immediately after the event ends, they analyse feedback gathered from speakers, exhibitors and delegates, to review goals and highlight priorities for the next. Discussions then begin to define and build sessions for a balanced conference programme of a uniformly high standard.

Committed to presenting the most relevant and interesting content, they collaborate closely to:


Define thematic and transversal directions that engage with the most pressing issues in the fields of banknotes and identity documents today
Identify topics and trends that hold particular promise for the immediate and more distant future
Evaluate proposals submitted in response to the call for papers
Recruit high-profile speakers from across the industry worldwide
Work with speakers to offer a unique, independent framework for interaction and debate
Advise on the eligibility of companies wishing to attend or exhibit


Since October 2016, Intergraf’s Committee of Experts is chaired by Dieter Sauter.

Written by Friday, 01 April 2016 13:14
Code of Ethics for Postage Stamps Security Printers

Postage stamp security printers play an important role in the stamp production chain.

In view of the increasing number of postage stamps illegally printed, issued and sold by stamp dealers and printers of unreliable or doubtful reputation, the philatelic industry has adopted a Code of Ethics for Postage Stamp Security Printers.

Intergraf is a constituent partner of the World Association for the Development of Philately (WADP), an industry group within the Universal Postal Union (UPU), which recommended that a Code of Ethics for Postage Stamp Security Printers be established.

Postage stamp security printers worldwide who want to be recognised as such are required to agree to this Code of Ethics for Postage Stamp Security Printers.

All the signatories of the Code of Ethics for Postage Stamp Security Printers commit to apply for certification as a security printer according to ISO 14298 Management of Security Printing Processes within a period of six months of signing of this code.

 
Procedure

To become a signatory of the Code of Ethics for the Postage Stamp Security Printers, please contact certification@intergraf.eu for further information.

After signing the Code of Ethics you will have 12 months to get ISO 14298 certified according to the Intergraf Certification Requirements.

During this period your company will stay advertised on www.securityprinters.org.

As long as your company remains certified against ISO 14298 and as long as it is not acting against the rules of the Code of Ethics for the Postage Stamps Security Printers, it will remain advertised on that page.
