Printing Standards Audit (PSA) is a rigorous, objective process for assessing a printer’s ability to operate a standards compliant workflow. Such workflows are fundamental to creating efficient print supply chains, especially as printers adopt new technologies and supply chains become more international in character. By attaining PSA Certification, printers can objectively demonstrate that they have mastered the use of standards in the workflows they operate.
