    Hi all,

    What would be a good translation into spanish of paper exercise in the following text?

    All workplaces where employees are exposed to hazardous chemicals must have a written plan which describes how the standard will be implemented in that facility. Preparation of a plan is not just a paper exercise - all of the elements must be implemented in the workplace in order to be in compliance with the rule

    My attempt : papeleo, burocracia

    Thanks

    Me parece que aquí se ajusta perfectamente la traducción literal: "un ejercicio en el papel". Es decir, que no es nada más algo que se escribe en un papel, sino que hay que llevarlo a la acción.
