Important notice for tendering authorities
Intergraf has recently become aware that ISO 14298 certificates not issued by Intergraf were in circulation during a tender process for ID documents.
In addition to the official ISO 14298 standard, Intergraf issues detailed and very strict certification requirements that companies have to implement to become certified.
These requirements are confidential and focus on different levels of security, i.e. fundamental level, governmental level, and central bank level. These levels are not part of the official (public) ISO 14298 standard.
We strongly recommend that tender issuing authorities examine with utmost care any certificates issued by certification organisations other than Intergraf – especially when they closely resemble Intergraf certificates.
Intergraf can only take responsibility for, and ensure the quality of, security printing processes in companies that have gone through the full process of Intergraf certification. Intergraf certified companies meet very demanding requirements.
We therefore kindly ask you to closely scrutinise and question any other certificate and, where stringent requirements are not met, to exclude companies with questionable certificates from your tenders.
Intergraf’s Certification Team is happy to further explain our certification requirements and available for any questions you may have.
