Tech/Engineering - Paper / Paper Manufacturing
French term or phrase: Bureaux des opérations
This term appears on the 'Page d'enregistrement' of a document relating to the authentication of recycled paper and the manufacturing thereof.


I'm sure there is a set English translated of 'bureau des opérations' but I can't remember what it is and can't find where I entered it 'safely' in my glossaries. Also, I can't decide whether the 'archivage' is to be read alone or whether the phrase is actually 'archivage bureaux des opérations'. As I said, this appears on a 'page d'enregistrement' with no other context.

Can anyone help me please?

Many TIA

I understand this to mean that the record copies of the documentation pertaining to the recycled status of this paper is at the company's operating offices.

Place-of-work archiving

Is what I imagine it means, or "Archiving (in the offices) at the place of work". There may well be another level of partial or duplicate archiving at head office, etc.

But it can still be:
Archiving (on one line)
Offices at site of operations (on another).

Implying that there might be another heading:
Regional management offices

National head office
