The Crane Malta site has recently achieved INTERGRAF – ISO 14298 – 2013 – Management of Security Printing Processes certification by passing a rigorous audit. ISO 14298:2013 is an international standard that specifies requirements for an organization’s security management system, published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Counterfeiting is a serious and critical issue for security printers, end users and authorities. Intergraf developed standards for security printers and their suppliers in cooperation with representatives from standardization organizations and industry experts to contribute to the fight against fraud.
Intergraf’s certifications have been a recognized reference for governments and industries to rely on in the area of essential security management procedures. Certification is only possible if an organization has established a security management system that complies with the description of the INTERGRAF Certification Requirements, in which there are three (3) levels of security printing.
These levels are:
- Non-Governmental Level (NG)
- Governmental Level (G)
- Central Banks (CB): Printers supplying central banks or credit card issuing authorities and ID or passport personalization centers
Crane Currency Malta has achieved the highest level – the Central Banks level. Congratulations to the Crane Malta team for all their hard work in achieving this prestigious result.
