Recertification for Intergraf CWA 15374
Boulder Imaging is also pleased to announce that we recently achieved recertification for Intergraf CWA 15374, a designation for suppliers to the security printing industry. Following an annual rigorous audit of the organization's security management systems, BI was granted renewal of the certification. BI remains the second U.S. company and the only U.S. machine vision technology supplier to be accredited by Intergraf.
“The comprehensive emergency planning required by Intergraf has proven to be highly beneficial when COVID-19 business disruptions began and has been an unexpected benefit to our certification,” said Don Mills, BI President and COO. “Our thorough business continuity plan, developed with Intergraf guidance and including a Pandemic and Infectious Disease Plan, has allowed us to seamlessly continue to service our projects and customers and maintain regular communication without disruption.”

Intergraf’s certifications have been a recognized reference for governments and industries to rely on in the area of essential security management procedures.
Additionally, Intergraf certifications provide core requirements for interacting and conducting business in today’s security printing market.
