New general secretary named at holography body IHMA

The International Hologram Manufacturers Association (IHMA) has outlined plans for growth with the appointment of a new general secretary.

Micaal Sidorov – regional director of Reconnaissance International – will be tasked with developing and expanding the membership base of the IHMA, in particular to include more non-traditional members coming from outside the security and brand protection industries.

Developing collaborative initiatives with the Counterfeit Intelligence Bureau, which includes expanding the Hologram Image Register to include images for other optically variable devices besides holograms, Secure Identification Union in China and Intergraf, the security printers trade association, will also be priorities, said the organisation.

Key tasks will include the implementation of ISO14298 standard for the management of security print and security foil production processes, meeting international image registration requirements and highlighting the benefits of holography against competing products and technologies, according to chair of the IHMA, Dr Paul Dunn.

Other plans include a series of workshops, with the first one to be held in Abu Dhabi this spring.

“The IHMA board looks forward to working with Micaal to continue to promote the best interests of holography, which is an important and growing sector, across the world,” said Dunn.

“Despite the economic, social and global supply chain challenges, we continue to see strong activity for holography with brand manufacturers and countries bringing forward their anti-counterfeiting plans,” he added.
