The Comparative Testing Service CEPI of the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI-CTS) is a proficiency testing and reference materials dissemination scheme which has run continuously since 1976.
This independent service is designed for all industrial papermakers, printers, converters and users of paper and board in Europe. Based on comparative tests, the service provides individual testing laboratories with:
- A means of checking the overall performance of the testing procedures, including calibration of the equipment,
- A system that can be used as a complement to traceable calibration and metrological checks when a laboratory applies for accreditation or certification,
- A system that can be used for evaluation of test methods.
The CEPI-CTS involves a program of more than 100 tests, each available at two to four different levels, in the following fields: pulp, paper, board, tissue paper, prints, labels ...
For the Paper Week and the 40 years of CEPI-CTS, the CTP has made its contribution by creating the anniversary logo.
