ISO Guide 41:1984

Guide for packaging -- Recommendations to comply with consumer needs and protection

Packaging is a product of consumer interest, the cost of which is borne indirectly by the consumer. Standardization of packaging should, therefore, address itself to such factors as safety, health, fitness of purpose, comfort and reliability, as well as such general needs as protection of the environment and energy conservation. When drafting a standard relating to packaging, the requirements set out in this Guide in the order of priority should be taken into consideration.
