Its collective expertise provides a unique source of information both for and on the industry, coordinating essential exchanges of experience and knowledge among its members while providing technical assistance to legislators. Through its 18 member countries (17 EU members plus Norway) CEPI represents some 515 pulp, paper and board producing companies across Europe, ranging from small and medium sized companies to multi-nationals, and 950 paper mills. Together they represent 23% of world production.

ETS - The European Tissue Symposium

The European Tissue Symposium (ETS) is a trade association of the European tissue paper industry, organized as a non-profit association under the Belgian law and established in the International and European Union environment of Brussels, Belgium. Its members represent the majority of the tissue production throughout the EU.

The objectives of ETS are:
o To monitor topics, events and developments which are of importance to the European tissue paper industry.
o To inform and advise the members of these events and developments.
o To research and develop issues and policies which have an impact on the tissue industry and to develop a greater understanding of the sector and its products. This includes the collection of technical and scientific information and the ordering of studies.
o Ancillary to these main activities, to liaison with other non-governmental associations, including industry trade associations, as well as with European and international institutions and authorities. 



In 1915, thirty enterprising papermakers gathered together determined to form a new technical arm of the American Paper & Pulp Association (APPA). Their idea was to gather and disseminate information concerning matters which have to do with production. This forward thinking group wanted to create a forum where information could be channeled and ideas could be exchanged. In less than a year, TAPPI was born and almost 98 years later, their formula for success continues to work. 

NACE Rev. 2 - Statistical classification of economic activities

NACE is the acronym used to designate the various statistical classifications of economic activities developed since 1970 in the European Union (EU). NACE provides the framework for collecting and presenting a large range of statistical data according to economic activity in the fields of economic statistics (e.g. production, employment, national accounts) and in other statistical domains.
Statistics produced on the basis of NACE are comparable at European and, in general, at world level. The use of NACE is mandatory within the European statistical system.
