PSTC is a North American trade association representing pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) tape manufacturers and their affiliate suppliers. PSTC members produce over 90% of the $10 billion dollars of the PSA tapes sold in North America.

The Responsible Tape Manufacturer (RTM) Program acknowledges and raises the visibility of PSTC member tape companies that invest in being responsible manufacturers.

PSTC’s RTM Program is uniquely comprehensive and recognizes good manufacturing practices as an integral part of the value that PSTC member tape companies bring to their customers. The program delivers quantifiable differentiation between RTM certified tape companies and all other tape producers.

For more information about PSTC and the RTM Program, contact Michelle Miller, Executive Vice President (630) 696-4016,

Trinity Consultants has made good progress to date; however, there are a few member companies that are behind schedule in regards to their certification process.  In an effort to provide additional time for those companies that may be underway and for those that have been through the review but have follow up corrective actions to complete; the deadline for certification has been extended from April 1, 2014 to July 1, 2014.  
We encourage those member companies that are through the review process and completing their corrective actions to continue at your current pace to finish. Those that are later in the process must continue at a more immediate pace in order to complete by the new deadline of July 1, 2014. If you have not scheduled your review and have begun your corrective actions (if applicable) please do so no later than April 30th. 
If you should have any detailed questions in regards to your corrective actions and/or have not scheduled your review please contact Rich Pandullo at Trinity at your earliest convenience   
You may also contact PSTC, Michelle Miller ( and she can channel the questions to the right committees for answers.
