3DAPv3 Proofing Accreditation Charges

As of July 1, 2011, the following charges will apply to vendors seeking 3DAP v3 approval.

3DAP COMPLIANCE KIT FEE - $100.00 + gst

Vendors seeking 3DAP v3  accreditation must first purchase a 3DAPv3 Compliance Kit -  consisting of:
3 x target proofs – Papertype-1, Papertype-3 & Papertype-4  – these proofs are the visual targets to match
CD containing:
- Measurement data for ECI/IT8 targets
- Measurement data for 3DAPv3 control wedge
- Relevant documentation explaining tolerances & procedures


This fee will apply to vendors who submit proofing solutions for accreditation by 3DAP.  
Successful accreditation requires Papertype-1, Papertype-3 & Papertype-4 proofs to achieve the necessary tolerance criteria outlined in the documentation, as well as passing a visual match to the supplied target proofs. If any proofs do not meet the criteria, the submission will be deemed to have failed - the accreditation fee will still be chargeable for the failed submission, so it is important for the vendor to ensure all submitted proofs fall within the documented tolerances.
Each subsequent submission will be charged at $200.00 + gst


This fee will apply to vendors seeking annual re-accreditation on existing proofing solutions.
It is the responsibility of the vendor to re-submit on the anniversary of the original accreditation date. If there is no application for re-submission on an existing proofing solution, the solution will be removed from the 3DAP website and the solution will no longer be accredited.
It will be the responsibility of the vendor to remove all 3DAP references on non-accredited proofing solutions.
