Abstract: The extremely rapid increase in the use of A4 and A3 photocopiers and printers in recent years and some printing problems observed in them make it imperative to continue and intensify the controls carried out on copy paper samples by the General Chemical State Laboratory in Greece. Samples of photocopy papers were brought to the laboratory and their mechanical and optical properties were tested. The construction of technical specifications in collaboration with other bodies of the public sector will continue to achieve effective protection of the public and private sectors, and of the consumer public in general. Action should be taken to inform those involved in the production, import and marketing of photocopier paper and the consumer in particular about the requirements of the appropriate technical specifications and the potential risks of using unsuitable paper in modern laser printers.
