The world's only self-regulated and non-profit organization representing the interests of the authentication solutions industry Authentication Solution Providers' Association (ASPA) has completed 16 years.
Formed on December 1, 1998 as HoMAI, it was re-launched in 2014 under the ASPA brand name to represent the transformation of products and services offered by its existing member companies.
ASPA aims to become the singular voice of the authentication solution providers in Asia and around the world, and works closely with global authorities such as International Hologram Manufacturers Association (IHMA), Counterfeit Intelligence Bureau (CIB) and Interpol, as well as industry bodies in India such as FICCI CASCADE, CII, ASSOCHAM and Indian Institute of Packaging.
"The last 16 years have been immensely enriching and successful for all our members. Adherence to the highest level of quality and ethical standards enshrined in the ASPA Code of Conduct has helped ASPA earn the trust of the industry and emerge as a strong voice in the hologram industry," said ASPA president Manoj Kochar.
"We now strive to achieve the same for the entire ecosystem of authentication providers. We are totally committed to promoting adoption of ISO 12931 that lays down performance criteria for authentication solutions used to combat counterfeiting of material goods," he added.
