To all CAP Mills out there – you can now become a CAP Mill of Excellence.

No more on-site re-CAP for high performance mills
Today, the re-CAP normally takes place three years after your first CAP and then annually to renew your CAP Accreditation. From now, 90 days prior to the re-CAP you can be reviewed for qualification as a CAP Mill of Excellence.

This means that if you meet the CAP Mill Excellence requirements, you will NOT need an on-site re-CAP, – you are excellent! We will manage a remote check of your status and if you are performing at a high level, you will be able to be excluded from an on-site re-CAP accreditation.

CAP Mills meeting the requirements for the CAP Excellence Accreditation will realize some savings on the annual re-CAP based on your conformance with the CAP Excellence requirements listed below.

What you need to do to qualify
We will verify and confirm the following with you:
- Annual and valid equipment certifications for
- Spectrophotometers used for CAP measurement
- Light box certification
- Light bulb change logs
- Conditioner
- The most recent Guardian or Net Profiler spectrophotometer diagnostic check
- That conditioner or conditioning room is in place and operational

You need to meet the following CAP Mill Excellence color performance requirements in the ColorWarehouse:
- Your annual performance must be at a CAP Level 4 or 5 (excluding measurements for whites)
- Your Data Hygiene must be at 98% or higher
- Metameric samples must be zero compared to specified tolerances
- FSRR Production samples are compared to the approved VLD, FSRR lab dip or FOP sample and are properly named in the ColorWarehouse

If you do not meet the CAP Mill Excellence level, you will undergo the normal on-site re-CAP for corrective action and additional training. Meaning: better luck next year!

Would you like to be one of the first CAP Mill’s of Excellence? Effective date March 1, 2016. Contact our support team at for more details.
