European Member Companies

papiNet Europe

papiNet started as a project within the Publishing part of the paper industry. A number of major paper suppliers, large German publishers and printers worked together to create a common standard for electronic business transactions. Soon there was a requirement to develop supporting software for handling the transactions via the Internet. This work turned out so well, that it was decided to enlarge the pilot project to encompass other parts of the industry. papiNet Europe currently has over 20 suppliers and a wide cooperation with customers within the industry.

North American Member Companies

papiNet NA is a Working Group of papiNet GIE 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. This effort was combined with the European papiNet effort in late 2000, and with American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) in 2001.
