If you do business with a PRCA member company, you can count on a consistent, compliant, and quality product. Look for the PRCA seal (coming soon).
PRCA’s Good Manufacturing Practices Program sets forth manufacturing practices and standards to ensure that our customers get the same high-quality product each and every time. We drive integrity to the industry and provide transparency around product contents supplied to North American receipt customers.
PRCA members comply with all global, federal, and local regulatory and legislative requirements. These include U.S. FDA requirements as well as paper chemistry regulations such as California’s Proposition 65. PRCA’s Board of Directors is notified of all visits and findings resulting from audits by governmental agencies or notices of violation of a regulation.
Verified Raw Materials
PRCA members maintain detailed specifications for raw materials, purchasing them from suppliers with quality assurance systems comparable to their own. Traceability and certification of raw materials are also critical, and PRCA members ensure the manufacture and supply of raw materials complies with all relevant legislation.
PRCA members convert rolls with consistent quality that meet GMP requirements as well as other material specifications. Some approved converting methods include using the exact paper grade and caliper outlined by the customer and setting the footage counter to the stated footage with a tolerance of +/-1 foot or +/-1%.
PRCA members assure that all measuring equipment is calibrated and adjusted at specific intervals to ensure product conformance to customer requirements. Job set-ups are verified via an effective quality assurance system, and critical incoming raw materials are accompanied by a certificate of compliance or are quality tested for performance.
