BS EN 15552:2008 Packaging. Complete, filled transport packages and unit loads. Performance testing schedules for common distribution chains

Packaging is designed for many functions in the distribution of goods like packing, handling, storage, transport, information, promotion, tamper proofing, easy opening, etc.

BS EN 15552:2008 is intended to assess the protection of goods through handling, storage and transport of packages. It specifies methods of deriving schedules for testing completed, filled transport packages and unit loads, representative of current distribution chains within Europe.

The objective of BS EN 15552:2008 is also to check whether the packaging is just sufficient to the level of stresses, but without excess.

Alternatives are sometimes proposed to better cover actual likely hazards. The specified testing schedules cross-reference well recognized international testing methods.
EN 13011 defines a system for the declaration of performance conditions within goods transport chains.
