The Metafix CMP Quality Plan
The Code of Management Practice: Guide for Photoprocessors outlines recommendations on technology, equipment, and management practices for controlling silver discharges from facilities that process photographic materials.
Metafix has taken the CMP recommendations and extracted 5 elements which we have incorporated into an ISO Quality Plan. In certain cases, we felt that the CMP guidelines were not reasonable when applied to our advanced technology. In these cases we applied our own higher standards to ensure maximum environmental performance at the least cost and effort to the end user.
The CMP guide is produced by the Silver Council, a national group of trade associations, technical societies, municipalities, and government agencies whose members are vitally affected by the regulation of silver.
The Silver Council’s purpose is to encourage communication between the regulatory and regulated communities, to support scientific research, and to share current scientific, technical and economic information about silver so that the common goals of pollution prevention, recycling, water conservation, and performance can be met.
