5.3.4. Note relating to the type of paper

Whenever it is applicable, the note relating to the type of paper used should take one of the following forms:

new paper:
PRINTED ON ELEMENTAL CHLORINE-FREE BLEACHED PAPER (ECF)
PRINTED ON TOTALLY CHLORINE-FREE BLEACHED PAPER (TCF)
recycled paper:
PRINTED ON RECYCLED PAPER
PRINTED ON PROCESS CHLORINE-FREE RECYCLED PAPER (PCF)

In the case of recycled paper, never use the words ‘chlorine-free bleached’ because it is impossible to certify the origin of all paper used in the recycling process (and therefore to guarantee that it is chlorine-free). However, the recycling process itself can be carried out without chlorine.
