The use of BRC materials can be an important component of a printer’s or converter’s sustainability program. The BRC program provides both ink manufacturers and suppliers of printing ink raw materials a mechanism for certifying the bio-renewable content in their products.
Participants in the program submit formulation information specifying the amount and type of bio-renewable material in their product. After technical review and approval by NAPIM, each product is issued a BRC ‘Index’ based on its biorenewable
A company specific registration number is issued which can be used to verify the BRC content on the NAPIM website. Artwork for BRC product labels with the appropriate BRC index and BRC “printed with” designation are also provided. Companies that are interested in registering their products may visit the BRC page on the NAPIM website for more information.
