GraphiColor Exhibits is EDPA-Certified

 GraphiColor Exhibits is proudly one of the 1st exhibit companies in the U.S.

– and currently the only one in Michigan –

to receive EDPA Certification.

We put ourselves through the rigorous screening process to make it easier for busy prospective clients to vet us, and feel confident that they will be working with a company that is held to the highest standards and practices approved by the EDPA.


CERTIFICATION PROCESS

EDPA members in good standing are eligible to apply for certification. If the criteria are satisfied, member companies are certified by an independent third party, iCompli (a division of BPA Worldwide).  The certification provides written assurance that the company meets the standards and practices approved by the EDPA. To achieve certification, the member company submits formal documentation along with the application directly to iCompli (STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL). Once a member receives the EDPA RFP Certification, renewal will be required to maintain their status in the EDPA RFP Certification Directory.

The EDPA RFP Certification assures others that the member company adheres to industry standards and best practices. If desired, prior to sending a RFP, corporations can access certified members through the EDPA RFP Certification Directory.   A certified company optionally may purchase a copy of their approved application to be forwarded from the third party reviewer to a prospect.  EDPA certified companies demonstrate and promote:

  • Ethical Business Practices
  • Industry Experience / Participation
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Operational Methodology

“The program was developed with the members in mind and every step of the way I have seen that guiding principle in action – from the original conception, to the application design, certification process, pricing, promotion, etc.  This is a model for how other associations should develop member certification programs.  iCompli is very proud to be part of this effort and we very much appreciate the confidence you have shown in us.  We look forward to making this program a resounding success for EDPA and its members.”
– Karl Pfalzgraf, iCompli
