The Sanyo Laser Products' Indiana facility has completed the internationally approved Anti-Piracy Compliance Program developed by the International Recording Media Association (IRMA). With over 70 plants enrolled worldwide, the IRMA Anti-Piracy Compliance Program (APCP) is well recognized as an effective weapon for replicators and duplicators to combat piracy. With this program in place, content holders are able to identify manufacturers that are protecting their interests by complying with stringent manufacturing and operational procedures.
Including the recently certified Sanyo Indiana facility, 39 manufacturing plants have earned and/or maintain Anti-Piracy Compliancy worldwide.
