Self-Accredited Cheque Printers

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)
