This procedure has been designed to provide a standard set of tests to understand individual package / product performance when evaluated against several handling conditions. Packages must not have been affected by shipment through the supply chain prior to testing in order to gather truly accurate data.
Packages will be subjected to the following tests (in order):
- Atmospheric conditioning at ambient temperature / humidity
- Vibration testing using the fixed displacement method at 1 inch peak to peak at a predetermined frequency
- Shock testing which can be conducted by drop, incline impact or horizontal impact
Types of packaging tested under this method
- Individual packaging (non-palletized) weighing 150 lbs (68 kg) or less.
