PAS 1008:2016 Specification for the performance and testing of a single-use flexitank

PAS 1008 provides a framework for the manufacture of high-quality single-use flexitanks. Such flexitanks can be used to safely transport liquid without leaking or causing permanent damage to general purpose freight containers. 

Who is the PAS for?

The PAS is for anyone who manufactures or tests flexitanks. It will also benefit: 

  • Shippers and cargo owners
  • Flexitank operators
  • Haulage companies
  • Forwarders and non-vessel owning freight container operators
  • Shipping lines
  • Rail operators
  • Fright container leasing companies
  • Insurance companies and protection and indemnity (P&I) clubs
  • The general public


What does the PAS cover?

PAS 1008 specifies requirements for: 

a) the material properties of the flexitank film and, where fitted, the sleeve

b) the leak tightness of the loading/discharging valve(s)

c) the flexitank system’s resistance to a rail impact defined as a 2g (gravitational unit) retardation or acceleration force

d) the provision of flexitank information.It also describes a method for testing the leak tightness of the loading/discharging valve(s) and a method of determining the flexitank’s suitability for intermodal transport by means of a rail impact test of the flexitank when installed in a GP freight container together with its restraining system.

How is this PAS different from the 2014 version?

The key changes are to the materials clause (Clause 4) and the flexitank system rail impact test (Annex B).
