Paper proficiency testing with Smithers
Smithers experts discuss the importance of joining a paper proficiency program, and how it can help you gain confidence in any in-house or external paper and board testing you rely upon.
Our Paper Proficiency Service is a bi-monthly service with samples and reports being supplied six times per year (February, April, June, August, October and December). For two of the rounds (April and October), the service combines with the CEPI-CTS (Confederation of European Paper Manufacturers - Comparative Testing Service) to provide a much larger comparative group.
For the majority of the PPS tests there are two samples/levels; clients can choose to take all levels or single levels for each selected test. See the order form below for the full, downloadable list of current tests.
