The new EN643

Nov 29, 2013

EN 643 is the European List of Standard Grdes of Paper and Board for Recycling. Revised in 2013, the new text includes several major improvements, including a grade-specific tolerance level for non-paper component and more detailed descriptions per grade. CEPI advises all organisations and individuals involved in trade with paper and board for recycling to implement and use the updated standard.


The Cepi guidance document

We launched a guidance document that details the changes in the revised EN643, to give advice to sellers and buyers of paper for recycling. The guidance was first launched at European Paper Week in English, but is already available in French and Portuguese. Other languages may follow.

English version

We have also prepared a power point presentation (in English).

A webinar detaling the changes in the revised standard was organised in December 2013: The video recording is available here.

We also prepared the following video giving the most important reasons for using the guidance:
