papiNet NA is a Working Group of IDEAlliance with the goal of involving all interested North American producers of paper and forest products and their customers in the international process to create and adopt e-business standards for the industry. The membership is a collaborative group of producers and customer, exceeding 20 companies. Prior to the formation of papiNet NA in May 2001, a group of publication paper producers, printers, and publishers had been developing XML standards under the auspices of IDEAlliance. This effort was combined with the European papiNet effort in late 2000, and with American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) in 2001. More information about papiNet NA can be found under Membership.
