Sample article from our Government & Public Policy

LOS ANGELES , April 20, 2022 () –

The European Union has further expanded its sanctions against Russia over the country’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. The expanded sanctions took effect April 9 and include trade of paper, board and pulp, which – depending on the paper grade – can affect both imports from and exports to Russia.

The amendment bans the import of goods in category 4804, including uncoated kraft paper and paperboard, as well as goods under 4705, such as mechanical or chemical wood pulp. The sanctions do not apply to Russian newsprint.

Meanwhile, EU producers can no longer export paper and board grades listed under Annex XXIII to Russia. The ban applies to exports of kraft paper, kraft board, testliner, filter paper, specialty paper and printing and writing paper, such as lightweight coated paper (LWC). Exports of cartonboard, folding cartons, recovered paper and chemical pulp are also banned. However, exports of dissolving pulp are not affected.

The sanctions do not directly affect Belarus.
