    Is there a PDF somewhere I can chew on which documents the two sets of expectations/requirements?
    For G7 Master Printer certification.

    Hello Roger,

    Please find the current G7 Master Pass/Fail Requirements here. These requirements were recently updated and published in April of 2019 through the extensive work of Idealliance's Print Properties & Colorimetric (PPC) council.

    This information, along with an extensive library of resources for G7 Experts and G7 Master Qualification is also available in the G7 Master Submission Kit as part of the G7 Expert Library at www.idealliance.org/g7.

    Thank you!

    Thank you Jordan for straightening me out!

    Got the current G7 Master Pass/Fail Requirements PDF.

    The section that answers my question is 6.0 G7 Colorspace Pass/Fail Requirements on Page 9.

    How could I miss that?

    Table
    I guess I was confused by the term "Production".which I heard repeated a few times in the context of G7 requirements. I'll know to substitute "Press toleraance" in my head for "Press tolerance": when I stumble on anyone using "Production" or "production tolerance". Clearly, the G7 Colorspace Pass/Fail requirements does not allude anywhere to "Production tolerance" in its entire 20 pages. .

    There is so much different terms being thrown around with regards to G7 that it is hard, sometimes, for a beginner like me to know exactly what is truly being meant. In those cases, there is nothing like "going to the source" :-)
