FSC project in conjunction with the SPA
As part of our ongoing relationship with the SPA we have committed to development work to assist our customers who are or wish to be FSC accredited.
The SPA, Abaca and Chartwellpm (an accreditation body) have collaborated to offer SPA members an easy way to achieve accreditation at reduced cost and using our software run the scheme efficiently into the future with self auditing tools and controls to prevent non conformance. For those customers using RF3000 bar code scanning its even easier as the scanners can be configured to prevent the issue of incorrect non FSC raw materials into jobs that are FSC specified.
The details of the offer to SPA members will be presented at the SPA conference on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th June.
