This Technical Specification provides guidance for the application of the requirements contained in ISO 11607-1 and ISO 11607-2. It does not add to, or otherwise change, the requirements of ISO 11607-1 and/or ISO 11607-2. This is an informative document, not normative. It does not include requirements to be used as basis of regulatory inspection or certification assessment activities.

The guidance can be used to better understand the requirements of ISO 11607-1 and/or ISO 11607-2 and illustrates some of the variety of methods and approaches available for meeting the requirements of those International Standards. It is not required that this document be used to demonstrate compliance with them.

It does not provide guidance for applications of packaging materials and systems after their opening. In the use of packaging for other purposes such as a "sterile field" or transport of contaminated items, other regulatory standards will apply.
