Description of activities in standardisation
SIS is the Swedish national standards organisation connected to ISO. TC 130 is a technical committee on graphical technology connected to the technical committees within ISO. SIS TK 434 is the Swedish technical committee for Graphic Technology, and also a participating member of ISO/TC130.
SIS TK 434 is constituted of a trade council called BRS (BranschrĂ„det fĂ¶r Standarder och Rekommendationer). The objective of BRS is to follow and disseminate information about trade recommendations and up-to-date standards regarding handling of information. It also initiates and influences recommendations and standards for the benefit of the graphic industry. As a member of BRS, GFF is actively involved in the development of standards.
Currently, GFF is working with an ISO-standardisation project, whose objective is to develop guidelines in Swedish for standardisation of the printing process according to ISO 12647-2. The guidelines are compiled in a manual called CGP âCertifierad Grafisk Produktionâ (Certified Graphic Production). Until now, all information about ISO 12647-2 has only been available in English or German. CGP aims to facilitate for Swedish graphic companies to achieve the ISO certification, and thus enable them to guarantee their customers a high and even quality of their production.
