Got a question about ICC Profiles or colour management?

Profile registration

The filename should be indicative of the printing condition, limited to characters and numbers, with no spaces or other symbols except for '-' and '_', and have the file extension '.icc'

Name of organisation providing the profile

Name of person responsible for registering the profile

Email address of person registering this profile

The copyright owner is indicated in the Copyright field in the profile header


If the profile ID is not available this field can be left blank

Yes   No 
A Perceptual Reference Medium is required in the Perceptual rendering intent of v4 profiles; preferably this should correspond to the PRMG. See Perceptual Intent Reference Medium Color Gamut for details.

Unique rendering intents
AToB0  AToB1  AToB2 
BToA0  BToA1  BToA2 
Check all that apply. A unique rendering intent has a different byte offset than other intents in the profile

Specify the registered printing condition (e.g. ISO 12647-2 Paper type 1)

The characterization data reference name must exist in the Characterization Data Registry

Provide if possible the complete end user license agreement for this profile. This should have been the subject of agreement between the vendor of the profiling software, the copyright owner, the owner of the characterization data and the profile provider, and should include any restrictions on end use.

A suggested wording for the end user license agreement is: "This profile is made available by [profile provider], with permission of [profile vendor], and may be used, embedded, exchanged, and shared without restriction. It may not be altered or sold without written permission of [profile provider]."

I confirm that there are no current restrictions on distributing the profile, and that agreement has been obtained from the copyright owner to redistribute the profile through the ICC Profile Registry.

I confirm that the profile will not be removed from the registry unless necessary.
