New Paper Shredder Security Standards

If you have purchased a paper shredder over the last decade, you may have noticed that the shredder is often tagged with some sort of security level. This level helps sort shredders by the size of their cut. The old security levels were based on a scale of 1 through 6. Level one was the weakest security and level 6 was designed for high security shredding. The old scale was created under DIN 32757.

Within the last year a new security level system has been released, called DIN 66399. This new security scale is far more elaborate than the old one. It has been set up and designed to deal with modern security issues. Many shredders are now used to destroy not only paper, but credit cards, ID badges, CDs, DVDs, film, USB drives and much more. The new scale takes all of these things into account.

When dealing with paper, the scale designates the letter P (paper) followed by a number to identify the security level. The paper security scale includes P-2, P-3, P-4, P-5, P-6 and P-7. Like the old scale, the smaller the number the less secure the cut. The P-2 security level is designated for strip cut. The P-3, P-4, P5, P-6 and P-7 are all cross cut and particle cut shredders with P-7 being used for top secret and high security shredding.
