ACVL is still largely US but increasingly international - we (Atlab
Australia) are members for example. Our own practice in making up rolls for
telecine is according to the telecine house's requirements: typically we
will go to 1600 ft lengths, no more. 

Kodak's Image Care specifications ar not as prescriptive as you might be
suggesting (except in the matter of chemistry). But if an Image Care
certified lab has a procedure that rolls are to be made up to no more than -
say - 1200 ft - then the accreditation requires that the lab follows its own
rules reliably, and can demonstrate that it does so. We go through a very
thorough twice-yearly inspection to maintain this accreditation from Kodak.

Image Care is a world-wide program, but seems to be strongest in Australia &
New Zealand, with a number of other labs across Asia and Europe: it's not
yet established in the US.
