It is important to be able to document optimal use of packaging.
For each packed product (product/packaging-combination) have a file/report either on paper or computer including:
- Documentation of minimal use of packaging materials in the packaging system you have chosen.
- In this case that the critical factor is the protection of either the product or the environment.
- Specification of the product.
- Specification of the packaging system
- Specification or reference to specification of the test programme
- Photos of damages after testing
When you are specifying the tests it is important to specify the direction of the package. Please use the system from ISO2206 - see drawings:
Side drop - specify drop 3 for a drop on the bottom (figure 1).
Edge drop - specify drop 2-5 for a drop on the edge near to you (figure 1).
Corner drop - specify drop 1-2-5 for a drop on the corner near to you (figure 1).
