Packaging testing encompasses a range of tests designed to assess the suitability of packaging materials for use with a given product.
Product packaging must be sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of transportation and environmental conditions, while remaining durable, safe and convenient for end users.
Packaging testing provides assurances that your packaging will protect your product from damage or degradation during the transportation and distribution process. Packaging testing can also reduce your packaging costs by identifying appropriate protection levels and reducing the amount of packaging materials used.
TÜV SÜD offers a full range of services for packaging testing that replicates the mechanical and climatic conditions that products may encounter during transportation and storage.
As part of our testing programmes, we can determine a product’s susceptibility to damage so that an appropriate level of packaging protection is used. In addition to reducing the risk of damage to products in transit, we can provide advice on possible cost savings through the removal of excess or unnecessary packaging.
We offer a wide range of packaging certifications and can take your products through a comprehensive range of tests. TÜV SÜD testing facilities have been accredited by the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) to certify that your packaging complies with current ISTA packaging requirements.
