Harmonisation of test methods a step closer: Global Tape Forum holds successful Taipei meeting (PRESS RELEASE)
Member associations of the international body that address key issues impacting this industry, pledged closer collaboration to develop and harmonise the test methods. Once finalised, the ‘GTF-Harmonised TMs’ will establish a quality label providing international credibility.
One major benefit of the label is a reduction in time and financial commitment required compared to the first three ISO-certification procedures which cost these European, American and Japanese industry associations a total of €25,600 and took five years to complete.
