Packaging - Tactile warnings of danger - Requirements (ISO 11683:1997)

This standard specifies the requirements for a tactile warning of danger on packagings which contain certain dangerous substances and preparations. To prevent confusion in interpretation, the tactile warning of danger is affixed only on packages covered by the regulations in force on the dangerous substances and preparations.

Diese Norm definiert die Anforderungen für einen tastbaren Gefahrenhinweis auf Verpackungen, die bestimmte gefährliche Substanzen und Zubereitungen enthalten. Um Verwirrungen bei der Interpretation zu vermeiden, wird der Gefahrenhinweis nur auf Verpackungen angebracht, die von den geltenden Vorschriften über gefährliche Substanzen und Zubereitungen abgedeckt sind. Diese Norm definiert nicht die gefährlichen Substanzen und Zubereitungen, die in den Verpackungen enthalten sind, die mit einem tastbaren Gefahrenhinweis versehen sind. Diese müssen von den gesetzgebenden Behörden definiert werden.

ISO 11683:1997(E)© ISOivForewordThe text of EN ISO 11683:1997 has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 261"Packaging", the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR, in collaboration with TechnicalCommittee ISO/TC 122 "Packaging".This European Standard supersedes EN 272:1989.The significant technical differences are the following :- addition of reduced size of symbol.This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publicationof an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by April 1998, and conflicting nationalstandards shall be withdrawn at the latest by April 1998.According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations ofthe following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium,Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy,Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UnitedKingdom.0IntroductionWhen blind and visually handicapped persons handle a package, it is difficult or impossible forthem to ascertain whether it contains harmless or dangerous substances or preparations.This problem may be solved by :- providing packages which contain dangerous substances or preparations, with a tactilewarning of danger in accordance with this standard ;- teaching blind and visually handicapped persons the meaning and the positioning of thetactile warning of danger on the package.This standard specifies a tactile warning which in its form is normally a raised equilateraltriangle, reduced to 3 raised dots where there is not enough space on the package for thetriangle.For blind and visually handicapped persons, the tactile warning of danger is simple in itspresentation, is as consistant as possible in its location, makes the teaching and learningprocess easy and provides a guarantee of recognition.SIST EN ISO 11683:1998
