This document (EN 643:2013) has been prepared by 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, organisations and individuals with an interest in the paper-recycling sector. It is intended to assist them in the buying and selling of these raw materials, which are 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 the limits 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. A limit for non-paper components of 1,5 % exists in order to achieve the End of Waste. Much effort was given during this revision so a definition of tolerance levels for non-paper components and unwanted materials was possible. The definition 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.
