ASTM D4169

Standard Practice for Performance Testing of Shipping Containers and Systems
ASTM D 4169 furnishes packaging designers with a method for predicting the performance of new or redesigned packages when distributed by any mode of transport. It provides a uniform basis for evaluation in the laboratory by subjecting shipping containers to a test plan of anticipated hazard elements encountered in the distribution environment. Each hazard element is simulated by an ASTM test method, and a series of tests, specific to a particular type of distribution, are conducted in sequence with the packaging unopened for inspection until completion of testing. The package is then opened and a determination made concerning its performance — have both contents and package emerged acceptably according to standardized criteria
