Fogra is an internationally renowned Graphic Research Association which helps businesses achieve quality standards. Technicians in pre-press and on the print shop floor need to understand process control in order to ensure a failsafe production. Similarly, the manufacturing processes must be executed reliably. SOS will help you obtain Fogra Certification and in doing so, you will benefit from the opportunity to gain Process Standard Offset (PSO) and Process Standard Digital (PSD) certification based on ISO 12647. Externally, this certificate provides proof of the quality of which a printing or media company is capable and internally it ensures smooth production that helps to avoid complaints. Fogra Certification is done in two stages; proofing (pre-press) and then on the press. SOS has held Fogra certification since 2006.
