Industry Standards

Industry standards

There are no indisputably recognised, world-wide industry standards for paper qualities. In Europe, however, the widely accepted standards are those agreed within Cepi ContainerBoard.

Despite the fact that the standards are normally widely accepted, there are some important limits to be taken into consideration, such as:

  • The development of specific grades at local level (i.e. country, market)
  • Particular traditions of the paper industry in certain geographical areas
  • Special agreements between producers and users.

Country industry standards

For these and other reasons, it is always advisable to check existing country industrial standards.
