Emirates Printing Press places great emphasis on achieving and maintaining international standards of business excellence and corporate responsibility.
EPP is the first commercial printer in the Middle East to achieve PSO (Process Standard Offset) certification from FOGRA/BVDM based on ISO 12647-2 standards. This certification assures a consistent level of quality via accurate matching of proofs and prints to FOGRA Standards.
EPP was one of the first printers in the Middle East to achieve full compliance with the global benchmarks for sustainable and ethical use of forest products. Receiving the FSC & PEFC Chain of Custody certification guarantees our clients not only the paper used in their publications and products comes from managed forests, but also the source can be identified through a transparent audit trail.
These two certifications stand alongside EPP's complement of business and human resources accreditations, including ISO 9001:2015 (process management), ISO 14001:2015 (environmental management), OHSAS 18001:2007 (occupational health and safety management), ISO 22000:2005 (food safety management system), HACCP and BRC Packaging.
EPP's plant is certified as a SEDEX compliant unit, based on SMETA 6.0 (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) best practice guidelines.
EPP has invested in the Hunkeler Waste Management System through which production waste is taken directly from the machines to the fully automatic bailing press. Even the paper dust in the air is extracted and transformed into recyclable blocks, an environmentally friendly solution that creates a clean environment for employees.
Compliance to these standards underlines EPP's commitment to sustainable quality and ethical performance as it serves the global marketplace.
