Intergraf cooperates across the value chain with new publications


Intergraf has published new documents, aimed towards the EU institutions, on vital issues. Intergraf has collaborated across industry and the value chain to demonstrate to the European Institutions the importance of these issues for the graphic industry.

10 Priorities of the European Commission – How the European Graphic Industry Contributes
In July 2014, Jean-Claude Juncker, now President of the European Commission, set out his ten priorities for the Commission until 2019. This Intergraf publication is the graphic industry’s response to these priorities.

The brochure states each point from the Commission and outlines the graphic industry's contribution and how the industry can do even better with the right regulatory framework from the EU.

Position of the Paper and Print Value Chain on the EU General Data Protection review
Intergraf took the initiative in this document. The review of the Data Protection Regulation aims to adapt the rules of data protection to the growing development of technology.

It is essential that the new rules allow for the more “traditional” side of the communication industry i.e. postal direct mail to keep its ability to process personal data.

The position paper was developed by Intergraf and four other trade associations encompassing the paper industry, direct marketing, envelope manufacturing and postal operators.
