TÜV SÜD provides technical consultancy, testing and certification services for the testing of product packaging. This service evaluates the performance of packaging, and the level of protection it provides to products in transit or storage. In addition to being a UKAS accredited laboratory, we are accredited by ISTA to advise and certify that packaging complies with the latest ISTA specifications.
As part of our testing programmes, we can determine a product’s fragility so that an appropriate level of packaging protection is used. In addition to reducing the risk of damage to goods in transit, we can also advise on whether cost savings can be made by removing unnecessary packaging.
We offer a full range of services for packaging testing that replicates the mechanical and climatic conditions that products may encounter during transportation and storage. For more information go to our environmental testing page.
