SGP Looking for Comment On Revised Certification Criteria
The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership has opened the public comment period for the revised Certification Criteria document.
Periodically, the SGP Partnership reviews and expands the Criteria document in order to address new sustainability issues and key changes in the graphic communications industry.
This revised criteria document includes an expanded sustainable policy and an enhancement of existing best management practices. It also provides a mechanism to integrate SGP's Binding, Finishing, and Loose-Leaf Criteria with the existing Printer Criteria into a single certification document. The comment period for the revised criteria will close on Feb. 4.

"This revised criteria document clarifies and strengthens existing certification requirements," noted Gary Jones, vice chair of SGP's technical advisory committee. "Once the new Certification Criteria is approved, a newly-created guidance document will be made available to all applicants, which provides detailed information as to how to meet the requirements for certification.
Both the revised criteria, as well as the guidance document, were prepared with assistance from certified printers and others in the graphic communications industry. Their input continues to be invaluable to the success of SGP."
