Green Certification

With the public's attention to the environmental protection, more and more consumers like to choose the products with environmental labeling and promoting more companies to get the green certification for their products. Constantly updating technology and standards so that product environmental indicators continue to meet the advanced level at home and abroad in order to promote the realization of energy-saving emission reduction, accelerate the transformation and upgrading of the industry played an important role. Due to industrial protection and support, companies which have green certification will have greater development space and prospects.

In terms of technical requirements for green printing certification, the Ministry of Environmental Protection has issued two environmental protection standards:

  • Technical requirements for environmental labeling products Printing, Part 1: Planographic printing HJ 2503-2011
     
  • Technical requirements for environmental labeling products Printing, Part 2: Commercial form printing HJ 2530-2012

In the later stage, relevant green printing standards will be issued successively, and the green printing environmental protection system will be gradually improved.

Yu Biao Testing is one of designated laboratory from China Environmental United Certification Center (CEC) which provided green products certification and supporting services, and we also directly involved in the development of green printing certification standards too. We can provide green print certification system programme with the credible test report by China Metrology Accreditation (CMA), it can help you to keep the safety and quality control for prepress material, mid-print and finial products stage. The conducting standards are as follows:
