Markem-Imaje receives BRC global standard grade AA packaging materials certification

Markem-Imaje is the first coding company in Europe to achieve a BRC Global Standard

Markem-Imaje, part of Dover and a global provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions and industrial marking and coding systems, has received the BRC Global Standard (BRCGS) Grade AA Packaging Materials Certification. This award reflects the exceptional standards at the Markem-Imaje manufacturing site for Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) inks in Bourg-Lès-Valence, France. Markem-Imaje is the first coding company in Europe to achieve a BRC Global Standard.

The certification was issued for two major processes performed at the Markem-Imaje CIJ manufacturing site in Bourg-Lès-Valence:

Inks and inkjet printer additives for coding and marking with direct or indirect food contact; and

Inks and additives for marking on primary and secondary packaging of food, beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and other products.

This certification comes just one year after Markem-Imaje received a BRCGS Grade A Packaging Materials Certification, a market segment first within Europe. The Packaging Materials Global Standard was the first to be recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and has become the global industry benchmark, used by food packaging producers but also by producers of packaging for all applications across the supply chain.
