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

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2. www.iso.org/directives

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received. www.iso.org/patents

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation on the meaning of ISO specific terms and expressions related to conformity

assessment, as well as information about ISO’s adherence to the WTO principles in the Technical

Barriers to Trade (TBT), see the following URL: Foreword - Supplementary information

The committee responsible for this document is ISO/TC 122, Packaging.

This fifth edition cancels and replaces the fourth edition (ISO 780:1997), which has been technically

revised.

All the 17 graphical symbols in this International Standard have already been modified to accord with

IEC 80416-1:2008, Basic principles for graphical symbols for use on equipment — Part 1: Creation of

graphical symbols for registration and submitted to TC 145/SC 3 for registration on ISO 7000, Graphical

symbols for use on equipment — Registered symbols.
Some of the major modification points are indicated as follows:
a) Title:

New: Packaging – Distribution packaging – Graphical symbols for handling and storage of packages

Old: Packaging – Pictorial marking for handling of goods

“Distribution packaging” is preferred to “transport packaging” in this standard. The reason is that

“transport packaging” does not include “stored” packages, for example, in the practice of “transport

packaging for dangerous goods”. ISO 780 concerns with packages during storage as well as those

during transport.

“Pictorial marking” is replaced by “graphical symbols” to coincide with TC 145’s way of addressing

pictorial marking.
b) Introduction:
Statements on safety issue and hand-written symbols have been added.
c) Handling instructions:
The order of the graphical symbols has been re-arranged in the following order.
1) Graphical symbols used for large-sized packages.

2) Graphical symbols used for middle and small-sized packages:
— For all types of handling;
— For manual handling;
— For handling using machines.
3) Graphical symbols used for both transport and storage.
4) Graphical symbols used for storage.

To make this standard easier to use, the layout of the table has been changed and each graphical symbol

has its Reference No. to ISO 7000, Meaning, Requirement, Note and example of application.

Introduction

Packages are often marked with handling instructions in the language of the country of origin. While

this may safeguard the consignment in the areas using the same language, it is of little value for goods

consigned to, or through, countries using different languages, and of no value at all if people handling

the packages are illiterate.

Graphical symbols offer the best possibility of conveying the consignor’s intention and their adoption

will; therefore, undoubtedly reduce loss and damage through incorrect handling. Moreover, graphical

symbols help ensure safety of workers, who cannot grasp such important information as structure,

gravity centre, property, and strength of a package while handling distribution packages.

The graphical symbols specified are in accordance with the rules of ISO/TC 145/SC 3, Graphical symbols

for use on equipment.

The use of graphical symbols does not provide any guarantee of satisfactory handling; safely and

properly protective packaging is therefore of primary importance.

Distribution packages could deteriorate as time passes and sometimes cannot withstand normal

handling before they reach the final destination. In such case, according to the provisions of the

distribution contract, we need to decide whether to stop shipping and storing them or to continue to

use them by putting proper graphical symbols on them. In any case, handwritten symbols are partially

accepted in this standard so that the proper symbols can be added to do the needful on the spot.
