Canon Prepared to Help Federal Government Agencies Achieve New, Upcoming “FADGI” Digitization Compliance

MELVILLE, NY, December 7, 2022 – An upcoming mandate will require more than 400 federal government agencies to digitize paper documents when submitting permanent records to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the Library of Congress. The new federal requirement called FADGI (Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiatives) includes specific image quality metrics and best practices.* To help agencies meet the new mandate, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announces the upcoming launch of the Canon FADGI Compliance Installation Package. This on-site installation service provided by Canon will upgrade select Canon imageFORMULA production document scanners to be capable of generating FADGI-compliant images.**

“Canon is ready to help customers ensure FADGI compliance with as little business interruption as is possible by upgrading to FADGI-capable scanners,” said Isao “Sammy” Kobayashi, senior vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We also could see the FADGI standard expanding to cover other public sector areas in the future.”

Customers will be able to purchase the Canon FADGI Compliance Installation Package with new Canon imageFORMULA DR-G2140 or DR-G2110 production document scanners, but the service will also be available for existing Canon scanners in the field.*** Upon installation, Canon will perform a test to verify that the Canon scanner and software are able to start generating applicable FADGI-compliant images.****

Agencies that utilize the Canon FADGI Compliance Installation Package will benefit from a low total cost of ownership – Canon’s FADGI-capable scanners and on-site installation are more affordable when compared to competitors.
