Previously, the Printing Works came top in the procedures announced by the national printers of France and Portugal. All of this year's contracts involve the production and supply of not less than 1,000 tons of passport paper per year.

- The road to signing such contracts is long and requires passing a series of qualification tests to guarantee the high quality of the product and providing documents confirming the appropriate productivity and competence of the staff, as well as meeting requirements related to environmental protection or production safety, explained Grażyna Rafalska, director of PWPW’s Sales Office.
