Webinar on the new EN 643

CEPI launched a pocket-size guidance document that details the changes in the revised EN643 European List of Standard Grades of Paper and Board for Recycling. We will also organise a webinar on the EN643 revision on 19 December 2013.

We advise all organisations and individuals involved in trade with paper and board for recycling, to prepare for the introduction of the updated standard. Many multinational companies are already implementing the new EN643 standard into their IT-systems, such as SAP. The new text includes several major improvements, including a grade-specific tolerance level for non-paper component and more detailed descriptions per grade. While the national standardisation bodies in Europe are preparing for the official launch of the updated EN643 early 2014, CEPI already issued a guidance describing the changes.

The guidance was first launched at European Paper Week in English, but will soon be available in German, French, Spanish and Polish. Other languages may follow.

In a webinar organised on 19 December 2013 at 10 am, paper industry experts will be available for question and answers. During the webinar CEPI staff will describe the changes in the EN643 standard in detail and will allow for enough time to answer all queries.

Webinar: Revised Paper for Recycling Quality Control guidelines

CEPI recently revised its guidelines on paper for recycling quality control, first published in 2002.

The objective of the guidelines’ publication is to achieve greater harmonisation, improve the implementation of the new EN 643 Standard and facilitate commercial relationships between paper mills and paper for recycling suppliers. The revised guidelines put a strong emphasis on the inspection procedure for quality control at paper mills and explain what controllers should consider during an inspection in order to decide if a load should be accepted, conditionally accepted or refused. The control procedure recommended is described in detail and illustrated by a decision tree at the end of the publication.

Join the webinar to listen to a detailed description of the revised version and to ask questions.
