If all your commercial and industrial packaging could be done as professionally as possible, these are the four features thereof that you could look forward to. Professionalism responding to the regulations laid down by the ISO will feature environmental impacts that can only be positive for your business and product line. If you are a registered source supplier that will be holding and distributing medical goods in all its manifestations and for all purposes, then medical packaging must, surely, be carried out in accordance with ISO specifications.
Because packaging will be carried out at different stages, just one or several times, distribution is also closely monitored. What was just outlined for you were the four features of professional packaging. So, just to recap, they are essentially; medical, regulatory, environmental and distribution-inclined. Whether these are ISO regulated or not does not even apply anymore because if your business has escalated it is possible that it now has a global reach.
So, whatever needs to leave your warehouse floors may be destined for a new port in different corners of the world as markets and needs dictate. That being said, a different set of regulations, not far off the standards set by ISO, is likely to apply. There will be other factors to do with environment and population to consider. Logistics and time need to be carefully strategized as well. You can see this clearly against the lifespan of your product or product range.
While it will always be necessary for you to have intimate knowledge of your products’ potential frailties and vulnerabilities, it remains good business sense to delegate testing and packaging professionals, bound by qualifications and experience, to ensure that your goods remain safe and are reliably transported.
