The Cheque Printer Self-Certification Program was implemented in 2010 to facilitate the acceptance of cheques produced by self-accredited printers and processed by financial institutions with minimal reject rates.
Interested printers must complete an application form in which they attest to the following:
- Their compliance with Standard 006 within acceptable tolerances and deviations.
- That they meet the additional requirements of the Cheque Printer Self Accreditation Program.
- Enrollment fee of $1000 (plus applicable taxes)
- Annual renewal fee of $350 (plus applicable taxes)
