In this issue of Inprint, we focus on the imminent General Data Protection Regulation (coming into force on 25 May) and what you need to do to become compliant (p6 & pp18-19).
Sticking with compliance, it's also worth taking note of new warnings from regulators on price fixing and collusion (p7) which is easier to get involved in than you might think, and can carry severe fines.
We highlight the potential savings that can be achieved from implementing our new and improved Colour Quality Management Scheme to raise your colours to the highest standard and reduce consumables wastage (pp16-17).
Our H&S Advisers discuss the dangers surrounding lifting operations (p5) and electromagnetic fields in the workplace (p8) and provide best practice advice on how to manage these safely.
Print companies are having to adapt to a fast-evolving and risky marketplace and diversification can result in some insurance grey areas that need to be covered. Take a look at pages 14-15 to hear from BPIF Insurance Services' dedicated team who are ready to advise you on how best to protect your business.
If you want to stay ahead of technology for marketing communications check out pages 20-21 for the lowdown on the upcoming Visual Media Conference on 27 March. Places are limited so register now. For more exciting events in 2018, turn to pages 28-29.
On pages 24-25 we look at members who have been busy hosting MPs at their premises and achieving accolades and on page 26 we share what we're getting up to for National Apprenticeship Week.
