Intergraf CWA 15374

Security Management System for suppliers to secure printing industry

CWA 15374 was set up by Intergraf and CEN (the European Normalisation Centre) in 2005. It is applicable to suppliers of products that include security features or services that ensure the physical IT-related security of printed matter manufactured by a security printing company. Equal to ISO 14298 the standard consists out of a management system (based on ISO 14298), a Risk Inventory Checklist and the Guidelines for Implementation. The Risk Inventory and the Guidelines for Implementation are special documents owned by Intergraf.

In addition to the rules of CWA 15374, the Risk Inventory Checklist describes a set of mandatory requirements that must be met to be a Certified Supplier to the Secure Printing Industry.
