The inspection of waste paper and cardboard is a useful tool to verify the quality of the material examined. Compliance with predefined standards ensures the reduction of waste, directly affecting the quality of the finished product. Moreover, being a good commercialized all over the world, many Countries demand monitoring to ensure the correspondence to the contractual requirements of the imported material.
Our sampling and control activities aim to verify the measurement of non-paper components and the composition of the product according to the requirements of UNI/EN 643. This European standard classifies 95 different types of paper to be recycled commonly marketed. For each of them, the standard identifies the composition and maximum tolerance limits of non-paper components and undesirable materials, as well as prohibited materials that must never be present in waste for recycling.
Whether the products are intended for the internal market or export, Galileo Inspectorate, as an accredited body UNI/EN 17020, verify that the product complies with defined specifications and is free of impurities that can damage the recycling process.
