Introduction

Packaging is designed for many functions in the distribution of goods like packing, handling, storage, transport,

information, promotion, tamper proofing, easy opening, etc.

This European Standard is intended to assess the protection of goods through handling, storage and transport

of packages.

The objective 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.

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this European Standard, the following terms and definitions apply.

3.1
test item
complete, filled transport package or unit load
---------------------- Page: 7 ----------------------
SIST EN 15552:2008
EN 15552:2008 (E)
3.2
single testing

specific test intended to check the reaction of a complete, filled transport package or unit load to a

predetermined stress
3.3
test schedule

succession of single testings, carried out in a predetermined order on the same complete, filled transport

package or unit load, in predetermined climatic conditions
4 Distribution chains and categorized shipped packages
4.1 Parcels delivery

Covers single packages intended for delivery either by express service (normally within 24 hours) such as

overnight postal service or by parcel services (generally over 48 hours).
4.2 Packages with intended shipping position

Covers packages fitted with integrated down bearers for easy handling by forklift equipments (i.e. platform,

skids) and packages of products with known shipping position (i.e. refrigerator).

4.3 Palletized loads

Covers all structured stacks of packages on pallets, together with possible stability fittings (interleaves, corner

posts, shrink/stretch films, etc).
4.4 Packages in maritime containers

Covers the maritime shipping of structured stacks of packages in containers, including connected road

transportations.
5 Relevant single testings and options

NOTE The single tests given in Clause 5 are those used in the test schedules in Table 6.

5.1 Climatic conditioning
To reproduce the ambient climates in distribution chains.

The preferred atmospheric conditions from EN ISO 2233:2001 are given in Table 1. Other atmospheric

conditions from Table 1 of EN ISO 2233:2001 may be chosen by mutual agreement between the parties; care

should be taken that equilibrium has been reached before testing starts.
