  1. Thanks for the information. Interested people will find it very handy. I will also order my copy now.

  2. The printing industry obviously needs to involve the BIS. Let's see how efficiently they respond to orders for the standards that we need. I will ask Parshav to also find out if all the 12647 standards are available.
