Graphic arts related color standards activities are being pursued by ISO Technical Committee 130 (TC130) Graphic technology, and ANSI Committee CGATS (Committee for Graphic Arts Technologies Standards). The content and application of the existing graphic arts color related standards are summarized. These are focused primarily on issues of metrology, color characterization targets, and reference images. The ongoing work has grown out of the need to understand the applicability of color management in the graphic arts work flow and the associated meaning of CMYK data. This has resulted in a growing understanding that, through definition and characterization of the output printing process, CMYK data can be effectively 'device independent,' although possibly not gamut independent. The ongoing work relating to the definition and characterization of various output printing process is also summarized.
