ISO 9001:2009-Certified


ISO 9001:2009 is a family of standards and guidelines for quality in the manufacturing and service industries from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO certification ensures that the processes that develop theproduct are documented and performed in a quality manner.

ISO 14001:2005-Certified

logo_14001ISO 14001:2005 is the international specification for an environmental management system (EMS). It specifies requirements for establishing an environmental policy, determining environmental aspects and impacts of products/activities/services, planning environmental objectives and measurable targets, implementation and operation of programs to meet objectives and targets, checking and corrective action and management review.


STMC_Logo-8243STMC stands for the Standardized Test Methods Committee. The International Imaging Technology Council (Int’l ITC) administers the STMC program, assures its proper usage and polices against misuse of the STMC program and logos. For more than a decade, the STMC symbol has been the remanufacturing industry’s indicia of quality. The test methods are used to evaluate toner printer cartridge performance. STMC uses certain ASTM test methods to evaluate a finished cartridge in comparison to another cartridge, typically an OEM cartridge.

DIN 33870

Din-33870Requirements and tests fort he reprocessing of used (monochrome) toner cartridges.  The standard defines characteristics and functions after the preparation as well as tests to demonstrate purpose of use.

DIN 33870-1 DIN 33870-2

DIN 33870-1 for monochrome toner cartridges.
DIN 33870-2 for colour toner cartridges that are used in colour printers
These standards define requirements and tests for the preparation of original toner cartridges (OEM) It is also included the ISO/IEC 19752 (Yield). Furthermore environmental and sustainability aspects are taken into consideration
The standards represent:

  • Remanufactured Original-cartridge OEM
  • Proven yield
  • Proven  quality
  • Clearly characterization and labeling
  • Detailed tests reports

Environmentally production

DIN 33871-1

33871The DIN 33871-1 ensures that remanufactured ink cartridges with print heads and ink tanks provide a consistent printing quality
