In Europe the standardization- body CEN TC 172 has set up a Working Group for inkjet paper. An important task of this group is to specify and test inkjet consumables for permanence requirements. Light-fastness, water-fastness, smearing resistance and waviness are the important points for a new European Standard. This new standard should establish guidelines for inkjet-prints to be used as photographic prints and also for packaging, especially label printing. The test methods used will be discussed and also results of investigations of light-fastness and water-fastness will be pointed out. Limits will be specified for requirements, which are good enough to permit the use of the inkjet prints for labels and as replacement for photographic prints.The main factors of this investigation are related to inks, paper and different inkjet technologies.
