Good Manufacturing Practice for the Manufacture of Paper and Board for Food Contact
CEPI is publishing this document as there is a need to provide papermaking Good Manufacturing
Practice in order to complement the contents of the recently published Industry Guideline1.
The document contains a number of new concepts and methodologies, the detailed operation
of which may be unfamiliar to some users. GMP is an essential part of the production of food
contact paper and board and CEPI considers it essential that the principles contained in the
document are accurate and practical, an ambition which cannot be fully realised until extensive,
practical experience has been gained. CEPI would, therefore, welcome feedback on the
operation of this GMP both from paper manufacturers and other interested stakeholders such as
customers and regulatory authorities with a view to its review and revision by the end of 2011.
