Due to the emergence of new technologies and increasingly intricate security features aimed at deterring fraud and combating counterfeiting, the landscape of security printing has undergone significant transformations in recent decades. However, there are certain challenges that present significant greater risks to both our industry and society on a broader scale.
To name a few, these include forged identity and travel documents that enable illegal border crossings, counterfeit currency infiltrating the global economy, and the generation of fraudulent identities using counterfeit birth certificates. While the technology behind banknotes and identity documents is constantly advancing, regrettably, so does the skill of counterfeiting. Security printers and their suppliers cannot afford to stay behind. Maintaining an edge over counterfeiters on a global scale, is a continuous and formidable endeavor. In 2003, Intergraf introduced its certification program as an integral part of its mission to promote and protect the interests of the printing industry.
Collaborating with technical experts from around the world, we developed international standards with a singular objective: to furnish security printers and their suppliers with a robust framework for overseeing all security printing processes. Whether it's logical security, physical security, or supply chain assurance, INTERGRAF ISO 14298 and INTERGRAF 15374 certifications ensure that a set of requirements are met to guarantee a high level of security across all operations and procedures, thereby minimizing risk for customers and their products.
