Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 April 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 17
ICS Code (Packaging materials and accessories): 55.040
scope:

This practice provides a uniform basis of evaluating, in a laboratory, the ability of shipping units to withstand the distribution environment. This is accomplished by subjecting them to a test plan consisting of a sequence of anticipated hazard elements encountered in various distribution cycles. This practice is not intended to supplant material specifications or existing preshipment test procedures.

Consider the use of Practice D7386 for testing of packages for single parcel shipments.

The suitability of this practice for use with hazardous materials has not been determined.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
