CEPI Annual Statistics 2018 - limited assurance report Deloitte

Deloite has been engaged by the Confederation of European Paper Industries ("CEPI") to issue a limited assurance statement on the data quality rating method CEPI applies on a selection of core indicators published in the "2018 CEPI annual statistics report", "2017 Environment Statistics report" and the "Key Statistics Report", being a summarizing public report in which the most relevant indicators are published. The core indicators covered by the assurance statement and the detailed data quality rating made by CEPI can be retrieved in Appendix 1 and 2 to our Assurance Statement. The data quality rating method applied by CEPI is based on Product Footprint Category Rules (PFCR) for paper, developed by the European Commission's DG Environment (see Appendix 2 to our Assurance Statement).

The full limited assurance statement can be consulted at the link at the bottom of this page.

  Otherwise for more information you may contact Bernard Lombard, Trade & Industrial Policy Director at b.lombard@cepi.org.
