Comprehensive Authentication Certification for Seamless Integration with Printers and Contract Manufacturing Organizations

An authentication program should not disrupt or force you to alter any current relationships with the companies who manufacture your products or print your packaging materials. With Authentix Authentication Solutions, your current vetted and qualified partners are enabled to mark products or packaging. A thorough, comprehensive Supplier Certification Program is completed by experienced technical managers from our Brand division as the solution is deployed.

To develop and implement the front end of an effective Brand Protection Program, all printers and contract manufacturers throughout the program need to be properly certified and enabled. To execute this, Authentix works directly with the printer and/or the contract manufacturer (CMO) in performing the following tasks:

  • Security and Printing Assessment Forms are sent to the printer and / or CMO. Authentix conducts an initial technical solution discussion with the supplier.
  • Information is returned from the printer and/or CMO and Authentix reviews all aspects of the security procedures at the printer / CMO location.
  • Authentix visits the printer / CMO and performs Security Audit and a Print Trial of the proposed technical solution.
  • Post-trial testing is performed and final security and printing reports are presented to the AgChem customer and the printer / CMO.
  • Authentix reviews Standard Operating Procedures with the printer / CMO and makes an additional visit for training and attending the first production run.

COVID-19 Policy Statement


At Authentix, our mission to safeguard the integrity of global commerce is our priority as we continue to focus on customer needs with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 health emergency. Our corporate leadership team is monitoring the situation closely and its potential impact on supply chain continuity.

Our first and foremost commitment is to the health and safety of all Authentix employees. As we have said when faced with other similar infectious disease situations, we will never force Authentix employees to travel to geographic areas where they are uncomfortable or that present an increased risk of exposure to infectious disease.

Effective through April 30, 2020, we have closed the Addison Texas Facility to all personnel who do not require facility equipment to conduct their job, allowing for only those functions such as production/shipping/testing as needed to continue to serve our customers. We have banned all visitors to the Addison Texas Facility as well. We encourage all Authentix sites to enact a similar ban for employee safety and to restrict visitors, but realize this restriction is subject to local needs. We have further banned all air/train travel for all employees for Authentix business purposes. We ask that all customers, vendors or suppliers support these efforts and for those who present themselves at Authentix locations to respect and adhere to our policies and procedures that may limit access on this temporary basis.

We will continue to communicate regularly with our suppliers and updating contingency plans to ensure against any adverse impact or disruption to our customers, acknowledging that we are however subject to continued government restrictions and limited availability of transportation that may continue during this time. We encourage you to reach out to your Authentix point of contact with any questions or concerns.
