Candidates who submit proof of work experience involving complex bookbinding products in their portfolio which does not fully satisfy point 11 of this catalogue shall undergo verification in those tasks which the committee is unable to validate. In cases where candidates do not provide proof of work experience involving complex bookbinding products (hardback and paperback books bound using manual and/or mechanical binding techniques) as laid down in point 11 of this catalogue, the committee will verify the production of two complex bookbinding products (hardback and paperback books bound using manual and/or mechanical binding techniques).
