Printer and consumables suppliers are backing print cartridge standards that will help users to identify which cartridge produces the most pages.

Supplier body the International Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) announced its support for the ISO/IEC 24711:2006 and ISO/IEC 19798:2006 printer cartridge yield standards this month. INCITS members include Canon, Dell, Epson, HP, IBM, Kodak, Lexmark, Pitney Bowes, QualityLogic, Ricoh and Xerox.

The standards for inkjet and colour toner cartridges define the attributes that affect yield and apply statistical analysis so that manufacturers can use the same methods when measuring products' output.

In the past, printer manufacturers have used a variety of methods to measure inkjet and toner yields, making it challenging for users to accurately compare yield measurements from different suppliers.

Paul Jeran, chairman of the INCITS technical committee for office equipment, said, "We believe the robust criteria and consistency of the standards, combined with ISO's unbiased and global approach results in significant benefits for customers and the printing industry alike."

The standards can be applied to OEM, remanufactured and refilled cartridges, said the INCITS.
