NCR is the abreviation of No Carbon Required.
The traditional method of transfering an image from the top sheet to the bottom was by using pencil carbon, a thin sheet of tissue coated with a carbon, this method has been superseeded by NCR paper, where two chemicals react under pressure to form an image. The original supplier was IDEM, IDEM is Latin and translates in English to "the same" other NCR suppliers include Giroform, Eurocalco, Reacto etc...
