Management of security printing processes

A security management system can enhance your organisation’s resilience to risk and potential threats. Combined with risk assessment, this strengthens your business.

Important notices

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.


Intergraf's official statement (June 2020)

For Taiwan tendering authorities

Intergraf has also recently been made aware ISO 14298 certificates not issued by Intergraf were in circulation during a tender process in Taiwan.

In addition to the official ISO 14298 standard, Intergraf issues detailed and very strict certification requirements that companies have to implement.

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.

Seeing an ISO 14298 certificate issued by the company Alberk Global, we are concerned about the quality of this certification which bears the mention 'governmental level' - a term referring to requirements set by Intergraf in its Intergraf Certification Requirements (ICR).

Intergraf has no information about the security requirements that the company TECO had to fulfil in order to obtain this certificate. The fact that the certificate can be obtained from Alberk Global within three weeks is very suspicious.

We strongly recommend that tender issuing authorities consider the certificate issued by Alberk Global in Taiwan with utmost care, as it clearly tries to pretend that the Intergraf Certification Requirements at 'governmental level' were fulfilled.

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 examine the certificate of TECO and, if the stringent requirements for the 'governmental level' are not met by the company, to exclude them from your tenders.

We would be grateful if you would take that information into account. Intergraf’s Certification Team is always happy to further explain our certification requirements and answer any additional questions you may have.
