Hierarchy
  • Section: D - Manufacturing
  • Division: 21 - Manufacture of paper and paper products

Breakdown:

This Division is divided into the following Groups:

  • 210 - Manufacture of paper and paper products

Explanatory note

This division includes the manufacture of pulp, paper, or converted paper products. The manufacturing of these products is grouped together because they constitute a series of vertically connected processes. More than one activity is often carried out in a single unit. There are essentially three activities. The manufacturing of pulp involves separating the cellulose fibers from other impurities in wood or used paper. The manufacturing of paper involves matting these fibers into a sheet. Converted paper products are made from paper and other materials by various cutting and shaping techniques, including coating and laminating activities. The paper articles may be printed (e.g. wallpaper, gift wrap etc.), as long as the printing of information is not the main purpose.
The production of pulp, paper and paperboard in bulk is included in class 2101, while the remaining classes include the production of further-processed paper and paper products.
