What you need to do

You would like to have your print job certified according to PSD Colour Data or renew an existing certification?

You need 

  • an inline measurement device qualified by Fogra

  • alternatively, an hand-held measurement device (calibrated and maintained according to manufacturer's specifications)

We need from you

  • the completed order sheet for each printing combination

  • your recorded measurement data (ISO 28178 or CGATS-Format)

  • the certificate of calibration or maintenance of the hand-held measurement device

Please send them to

More details

  1. Select one or more printing combination(s): printer, substrate, RIP, ...

  2. Print out and measure the Fogra MediaWedge. When inline measurements are once qualified by Fogra, these systems can validate the colour immediately.

  3. Save the measurement data as a text file including information on the date of the measurement, the model name and serial number of the measurement device and method (e.g. M0, M1, M2).

Would you like to have different versions certified? Please name the measurement files accordingly (_#1, _#2, ...).

Our procedure

After receiving your measurement file, we will check and evaluate the data via our Matlab routine, which was specially developed for the PSD Colour Data certification. Within 2-4 working days, you will receive the result and information on the classification of the achieved quality level A, B or C (see PSD Handbook Chapter 6.5).

In case of a successful (re-)certification, we issue a certificate and list your company in our FograCert database.
