FograCert Contract Proofing System

ISO 12647-7 specifies criteria and tolerances for the certification of Contract Proofing Systems as well as for Contract Proof Creation in the field. The FograCert Contract Proofing System reflects the criteria and tolerances stipulated in the current standard.

Attention: New tolerances! - As of 2017, the certification will be based on the specifications of the revised standard ISO 12647-7:2016.

Important note: Due to maintenance the database of certified systems cannot be updated at this point, and there can be issues with the search. Thank you for your understanding (12.09.2018).

Based on ISO 12647-7:2016, we check your Contract Proofing System with respect to:

  • PDF/X conformance
    Ghent Output Suite 5.0 and informative evaluation of Altona Test Suite 2.0 Technical 2
  • Proofing substrate colour, gloss and fluorescence
  • Colour accuracy [Gamut]
  • Uniformity
  • Permanence and light fastness
  • Fading [drift]
  • Long and short term repeatability
  • Rub resistance of proof print
  • Colorimetric tone value transfer
  • Tone value reproduction limits
  • Image register and resolving power
  • Margin information

For halftone proofs, the following, additional criteria are to be tested:

  • Screen frequency
  • Screen angle
  • Halftone dot shape

(In case halftone proofs are subject to the certification, a separate print based on ISO 12647-2 will be provided by Fogra. It includes an ISO 12642-2 test chart [IT8.7/4] and will be shipped with the 1 bit Tif data accompanied by the pertinent linearization information. The measurements of the print will serve as the reference for this combination.)

Duration of the test:

  • 2 weeks preparation
  • 2 days at the vendors premise
  • Written report after 3 weeks
