SpecialIty Grades

The grades listed below are produced and traded in carload and truckload quantities throughout the United States, and because of certain characteristics (i.e., the presence of wet strength, polycoatings, plastic, foil, carbon paper, hot melt glue), are not included in the regular grades of paper stock. However, it is recognized that many mills have special equipment and are able to utilize large quantities of these grades. Since many paper mills around the world do use these specialty grades, they are being listed with appropriate grade numbers for easy reference. The Paper Stock Industries Chapter of ISRI is not establishing specific specifications, which would refer to such factors as the type of wet strength agent used, the percentage of wax, the amount of polycoating, whether it is on top of or under the printing, etc. The specification for each grade should be determined between Buyer and Seller, and it is recommended that purchase be made based on sample.

These specialIty grades are as follows:

Guidelines for Paper Stock: PS-2013—Export Transactions

Paper Stock: Export Transactions

PREAMBLE

These standards and practices apply to paper stock for repulping only and are for use in export transactions from the United States, Canada and Mexico. Transactions may be modified by mutual agreement between Buyer and Seller. Basic to the success of any Buyer-Seller relationship is an atmosphere of “good faith.” In keeping with this, the following principles have been established:

  1. Seller must use due diligence to ascertain that shipments consist of properly packed paper stock and that shipments are made during the period specified.
  2. Arbitrary deductions, cancellations and rejections by the Buyer are counter to acceptable good trade practice.
  3. Seller shall deliver the quality of paper stock agreed upon but shall not be responsible for the use of the paper or for the manufactured product.

THE PURCHASE AGREEMENT

Each transaction covering the purchase or sale of paper stock should be confirmed in writing and include agreement on the following items:

1. Quantity: Where possible, the quantity shall always be specified in terms of a definite number of metric tons of 2,204.6 pounds each, or short tons of 2,000 pounds each.

a. When the quantity is specified in tons or tonnes, the order shall be considered completed when aggregate shipments are 5% under or over the quantity ordered.

b.The Buyer and Seller shall establish minimum container-load weights.

2.Grades: Where possible, each grade purchased shall be specified in accordance with the grade as defined in the latest Paper Stock Industries Chapter Standards and Practices Circular. Any deviation from the grades listed in the simplified Circular should be specified and agreed to by both parties.

3. Packing: Unit type, i.e. bales, skids, rolls, pallets, boxes, or bundles should be specified

4. Pricing and Terms: The agreed price and payment terms shall be clearly stated.
5. Shipping Terms: Shipping terms shall be indicated with the use of acronyms such as: “F.A.S.,” “C&F,” “C.I.F.” or “CY.”
6. Shipping Instructions: Shipping instructions should be provided by the Buyer at the time of the order. Information should include: consignee, notify party, documentation, and inspection requirements. Insurance and freight payment information should be mutually agreed upon.
7. Shipping Period: The shipping period shall be mutually agreed upon by the Buyer and the Seller.
8. Method of Invoicing: Invoicing instructions shall be clearly stated.

Fulfilment by the Seller

Practices of the Seller shall be in accordance with the following:
1. Acceptance: All orders shall be confirmed in writing.
2. Grading: Paper stock which is sold under the grade names
appearing in the PSI Standards and Practices Circular shall conform to those grading definitions.
3. Packing: Each unit must be sufficiently secured to ensure a satisfactory delivery.
4. Tare: If agreed to by the Buyer, sides and headers may be used to make a satisfactory delivery of the bales but must not be excessive. The weight of the skids and other similar materials shall be deducted from a gross invoice weight.
5. Loading: Paper stock shall be loaded as follows:
a. All loads shall consist entirely of one grade of paper stock unless otherwise agreed to. When two or more grades are included in the same shipment, units of each grade shall be kept together in a separate part of the container.
b. Paper stock must be loaded in a manner that will minimize shifting and breakage. Excessive breakage prior to unloading may be cause for a claim.
6. Shipping Notice: A packing list, shipping advice and/or an invoice shall besent to the Buyer within 72 hours of the vessel sailing.
7. Invoicing: Invoicing should conform to the instructions on the order and include the following data:
a. Date of Shipment
b. Container Number
c. Steamship Line, Vessel, Voyage Number d.Bill of Lading Number
e. Customer’s Order Number
f. Shipper’s Invoice Number
g. Number of Units etc.
h. Weight and Grade
i. Price and Extension
j. Payment Terms
8. Claims: When notified of a claim, the Seller must, within five business days, advise the Buyer as to which of the following procedures the Seller has decided upon:
a. Agree with the Buyer to a compromise acceptance
and settlement.
b. Require the opportunity to inspect the quality of the
material in question.
c. Request that the Buyer agree to submit the claim to arbitration.

Fulfillment by the Buyer

The practice of the Buyer shall be in accordance with the following:
1. Unloading:  After arrival of the shipment, the Buyer is to inspect the contents so far as possible while it is still loaded. If the shipment appears to be in accordance with the order and shipping notice, the Buyer shall proceed with the unloading. If the shipment does not appear to be in accordance with the order and shipping notices, or if the quality of the stock is not in accordance with specifications agreed to, the Buyer shall immediately notify the Seller before unloading. If during the process of unloading, any portion of the shipment not visible in the original inspection is not in accordance with specifications, shipping notice and order, that portion shall be set aside and the Seller immediately notified. If at any time within 21 days after receipt of shipment, the Buyer, upon opening the bales finds objectionable materials heretofore not visible, he shall immediately notify the SellerIn the event of any claim, the Buyer shall use due diligence to protect all controversial paper stock from external deterioration or contamination.
2. Claims: Other Than Quality The Buyer shall within 10 days of unloading notify the Seller of any necessary changes and shall furnish detailed information with regard to these changes.
3. Rejection: In the event of a rejection, the Buyer shall be responsible for any paper stock used by the Buyer and the freight thereon, other than such quantity as may be considered reasonable for laboratory sampling or testing purposes. The Buyer must protect the shipment from weather or any other elements until the claim is settled.

Miscellaneous Practices

1. Ownership:
If the shipment is purchased on a “delivered destination” basis, and is in accordance with the agreement covering the transaction, it remains the property of the Seller until it is delivered to the Buyer by carrier.
2. Demurrage Charges:
a. Any demurrage accrued on a shipment due to the failure of the Seller to ship in accordance with the order, except with respect to quality, is the liability of the Seller.
b. In the event that a rejection for quality stands, any demurrage accruing on the shipment prior to notification to the Seller shall be the Buyer’s liability.
c. In the event that negotiation of substantiated rejection for quality results in agreement by the Buyer to accept the shipment, then only the demurrage, following notification of the rejection—and including 24 hours after the agreement—becomes the liability of
the Seller. Demurrage accruing prior to and including the day of notification becomes the liability of the Buyer.
3. Switching and Freight charges: Any extra switching or excess freight charges accruing on a shipment due to the failure of the Seller to protect the agreed upon minimum rate or to ship in accordance with the agreement is the liability of the Seller.
4. Weight Discrepancies: No debits, credits or adjustments shall be issued on any shipment of paper stock when the weight variation is 2% or less. In the event that a discrepancy exceeds those mentioned above as “allowable;” the Buyer and Seller shall exchange copies of certified weight in containers. In the event that both parties have such records, and errors cannot be determined, it is recommended that the weight closest to the public carrier’s scale weight shallbe assumed to be correct, Buyer and Seller should agree on the location of the public carrier’s scale prior to shipment. In the absence of such records on the part of one of the parties, the records of the other party shall govern.
5. Moisture Content: All paper stock must be packed air dry. A moisture content of 12% is deemed to be air dry. Where excess moisture is present in the shipment, the Buyer has the right to request an adjustment. Whenever possible, such adjustment shall be made on an averageair dry basis.
6. Replacement of Shipment: In the event that any shipment is rejected due to quality: Whether or not the shipment is to be replaced is to be decided by mutual agreement between Buyer and Seller.
7. Promptness of Shipment:
a. In the event that Buyer causes shipment to be postponed: On instructions of the Buyer, the Seller shall have the option of extending the time limit of the order by the same number of days of the postponement, or of canceling that portion of the order on which shipment was postponed. Seller shall promptly notify Buyer of option selected.
b. In the event that Buyer causes shipment to be postponed: On instructions of the Seller, the Buyer shall have the option of extending the time limit of the order by the same number of days of the postponement, or of canceling that portion of the order on which shipment was postponed. Buyer shall promptly notify Seller of option selected.
8. Outthrows: Outthrows shall be understood to be all papers that are so manufactured or treated or are in such form as to be unsuitable for consumption as the grade specified.
9. Prohibitive Materials
a. Any materials which, by their presence in a packing of paper stock, in excess of the amount allowed, make the packing unusable as the grade specified.
b. Any materials which, by their presence in a package of paper stock, pose a risk of damage to the equipment. Note: In connection with Items 8 and 9, a material can be classified as an “Outthrow” in one grade and as a “Prohibitive Material” in another grade. Carbon
paper, for instance, is “UNSUITABLE” in Mixed Paper and is, therefore, classified as an “Outthrow”; whereas it is “UNUSABLE” in White Ledger and in this case classified as a “Prohibitive Material.”

Arbitration

In the event of a total disagreement between Buyer and Seller, the dispute should be submitted to ISRI arbitration. In all cases, the cost of arbitration shall be borne by the party found to be at fault, or split in the event of compromise, as determined by the arbitrators.

Grade Definitions

The definitions which follow describe grades as they shouldbe sorted and packed. CONSIDERATION SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE FACT THAT PAPER STOCK AS SUCH IS A SECONDARY MATERIAL PRODUCED MANUALLY AND MAY NOT BE TECHNICALLY PERFECT. Definitions may not specifically address all types of processes used in the manufacture or recycling of paper products. Specific requirements should be discussed between Buyer and Seller during negotiations.
Outthrows –The term “Outthrows” as used throughout this section isdefined as “all papers that are so manufactured or treated or are in such a form as to be unsuitable for consumption as the grade specified.”

Prohibitive Materials- The term “Prohibitive Materials” as used throughout thissection is defined as:
a. Any materials which by their presence in a packing of paper stock, in excess of the amount allowed, will make the packaging unusable as the grade specified.
b. Any materials that may be damaging to equipment.
A material can be classified as an “Outthrow” in onegrade and as a “Prohibitive Material” in another grade. Carbon paper, for instance, is “UNSUITABLE” in Mixed Paper and is, therefore, classified as an “Outthrow”; whereas it is “UNUSABLE” in White Ledger and in this case is classified as a “Prohibitive Material.”
Other Acceptable Papers- The term “Other Acceptable Papers” as used throughoutthis section is defined as “all other papers that are deemed acceptable by the buyer and allowed in that buyer’s pack up to the percentage allowed.”
Glossary of Terms:
A supplemental glossary of paper stock terms is located at the end of the Domestic Transactions section. The purpose of this limited list of terms is to help the user better understand specific grade definitions contained within this Circular.
