Over deze norm
This International Standard specifies requirements and a procedure for assessment of packaging to ensure that the weight or volume of its material content is optimized consistent with the functions of packaging. This is one of several options for reducing the impact of packaging on the environment. This document also provides methodologies and procedures for: a) determining the amount and minimization of substances or mixtures hazardous to the environment; b) determining the amount of four heavy metals (lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium) in packaging. The potential for such substances to be released into the environment is included in the assessment. The procedures are referenced in Annex C. The process for package design, including material selection, is not included in this standard. The purpose is to help ensure and demonstrate that the package efficiently uses the selected material. The procedure for applying this International Standard is contained in ISO 18601.
