This document (EN 643:2014) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 172 "Pulp, paper and board", the secretariat of which is held by DIN. The European list of standard grades of paper and board for recycling is intended to be used by industry professionals, organizations and other groups with an interest in the paper-recycling sector. It is intended to assist them in the buying and selling of this raw material, which is intended for recycling by the paper and board industry without the need of additional sorting prior to use at a paper mill. The definition for 'prohibited materials' and for non-paper components provide guidance and support for Customs and Excise Officers who are required to differentiate these raw materials from waste in the context of supranational legislation on the control of waste shipments. There is a limit for non-paper components which is set for every grade, typically below 1,5 %, weight by weight in order to reach the end-of-waste status. For that reason, much effort was given to the revision for the definition of tolerance levels for non-paper components and unwanted materials. The specification of tolerance levels reduces the need for individual agreements between buyer and supplier. However, specific agreements between individual buyers and suppliers may be used. Higher tolerances lead to non-standard grades of paper and board for recycling.
