Certifications & Compliance

G7 Master Printer

Vision Integrated Graphics has earned the certification of G7 Master printer status from the International Digital Enterprise Alliance (IDEAlliance). G7 is an innovative calibration process that controls and assures a visual match between proofs and the finished print product. This new quality control process enables us to produce more predictable and more consistent color with less preparation and less waste. Master Status is only granted to those companies that successfully pass an audit of press color measurement equipment, process control procedures and verifications of both proof and print quality.

The G7 proof-to-print process assures improved grey balance, color stability and color appearance matching across multiple printing sites that carry G7 certification. The G7 standard was developed by IDEAlliance and the GRACol Committee. The process utilizes the principles of digital imaging, spectrophotometry and computer-to-plate technology to maximize color match.  You can feel confident that the visual appearance of our proofs will be confirmed by the printed product, whether it is printed digitally or conventionally.

FSC

The Vision Integrated Graphics Group is pleased to announce that we have been certified to Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) chain-of-custody standards as part of our commitment to responsible forest management. While the recognition is nice to have, our commitment to conservation isn’t new. In fact, we have exceeded the state’s standard for FSC Certification compliance since 1998 when we were awarded the designation of Illinois Best Printers for our voluntary pollution reduction programs.

At Vision, we have always believed in the importance and impact of environmentally sound business practices because we want to be part of the solution – not the problem. You can be certain we will continue working hard to be in complete compliance with Illinois’ regulations for air, land and water conservation.

As part of our commitment to responsible forest management, Vision has been certified to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain-of-custody standards. This certification allows Vision to print on certified materials and utilize the FSC logo for the many customers we serve. Now you can proudly display the FSC logo on your materials to show the world you’re making a difference.

HIPAA

Vision is HIPAA compliant. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) required the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to develop regulations protecting the privacy and security of certain health information. The HIPAA Privacy Rule protects the privacy of individually identifiable health information, called protected health information (PHI), as explained in the Privacy Rule. The Security Rule protects a subset of information covered by the Privacy Rule, which is all individually identifiable health information a covered entity creates, receives, maintains or transmits in electronic form. The Security Rule calls this information “electronic protected health information” (e-PHI).

Specifically, covered entities must:
  • Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all e-PHI they create, receive, maintain or transmit
  • Identify and protect against reasonably anticipated threats to the security or integrity of the information
  • Protect against reasonably anticipated, impermissible uses or disclosures; and ensure compliance by their workforce

NIST

Vision has adapted to conform to the NIST 800-53 standards to operate our Information Security model.  These recognized standards are a model of quality and we use this framework to monitor and control risk.

NIST is used to:
  • Identify risks
  • Implement controls to reduce risk
  • Continuously improve controls
