Type of Standards


This part of ISO 12647 specifies a number of process parameters and their values to be applied to fourcolour publication gravure printing. The parameters and values are chosen in view of the complete
process covering the process stages “colour separation”, “making of the printing forme”, “proof
production”, and “production printing”.
This part of ISO 12647 is applicable,
— directly, to publication gravure printing, including magazines, catalogues, and commercial materials,
— directly, to half-tone and continuous tone proofing processes that predict the colourimetric results
of gravure printing, and
— by analogy, to process-colour gravure package printing.
It is not directly applicable to the specifics of the transformations necessary to relate digital input data
to the data used to create the cylinder engraving data and/or the proofing process.

When things don't work as they should, it often means that standards are absent.
