IPAMA is a core member of the National Committee on Capital Goods and Engineering, of Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). The guidelines laid down by the Bureau for standardisation of printing machinery and other allied products, were subscribed by IPAMA. Today, Indian graphic arts machinery and products have largely earned global acceptance mainly due to IPAMA’s constant and serious efforts.
