The Ghent Workgroup has as goals to develop and dissimenate specifications for the graphic arts industry. As such, we advocate that other vendors write applications compliant to the specifications and that industry associations use our specifications or base their specifications on them.

We ask that:

  1. Anyone who quotes or redistributes the material on this web site should give proper credit. Please use the official name “Ghent Workgroup” and refer to the web site ( whenever you do so.
  2. Application vendors who wish to state that their applications are compatible read the “Compliant Applications” page and follow the guidelines provided therein before they advertise their applications as compliant. Failure to do so might lead to action taken by the Executive Committee of the Ghent Workgroup.
