What is a UN-Certifiable Package?

UN packaging requirements involve a series of protocols to guarantee safety during the transportation and storage of goods. UN packaging testing is a series of tests and requirements to determine the integrity and safety of the package when facing various situations. Once a package has undergone a series of safety tests, the package is considered safe for transportation and is UN-Certifiable.*

Tests conducted in this process include testing for leakage, reactions to pressure, ability to undergo stacking, and resistance to piercing. After all testing is completed, and a report has been drawn up to show that they were successful, a package is considered UN-Certified.*
