Identify a bale
The European Recovered Paper Identification System allows you to identify the supplier of the recovered paper you purchased, received, stored and consumed or inspected.
The European Recovered Paper Identification System starts at suppliers’ sources and depots and ends at the conveyor to the pulper: every member in the recovered paper chain has to keep track of his supplier, one step up and one step down the chain.

The bale markings have to be clearly and completely visible in all the movements of the bale in the recovered paper yard (storage, quality controls, feeding of the conveyor) up to the pulper.
