Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

Introduction

Metal cans are important packaging for the food industry, as they provide a long shelf life for food and

beverage products. They are used for canning vegetables and meat, as well as beer and carbonated

drinks. The pull tab for beverage cans was invented in 1959 and easy-open ends with the pull tab have

been included with various types of metal cans since the 1960s. The easy-open end solves the problem

of how to open the can and is convenient and instant, which is what customers demand. It also allows

more products (e.g. soup, juice, coffee) to be stored in metal packaging. There are many advantages to

using metal cans such as strength, good sealing capacity and easy storage, and they are a convenient

way to transport seasonal food and beverages around the world.

A large number of easy-open ends and peel-off ends are produced every year, and they have become an

important part of the can manufacture industry. Along with thinner and lighter demands for metal food

packaging, softer aluminium peel-off ends have been developed for use in some food cans and powder

cans. They have improved the convenience and safety of opening the metal cans.
