What is UN Specification Packaging?

While not law, the UN Model Regulations are the go-to guide for safely transporting hazardous materials internationally. They also inspire national regulations, ensuring consistency for hazmat shipping worldwide.

UN Specification Packaging, also known as Performance Oriented Package (POP), refers to packaging that has been rigorously tested and certified to meet the safety standards established by the United Nations Model Regulations for the Transport of Dangerous Goods. This packaging ensures the safe handling and secure transport of dangerous goods and potentially harmful substances.

Recognizable by its distinctive packaging code, these crates are meticulously tested according to the specific standards established by the United Nations.

Here are some of the benefits of using UN Specification Packaging:

  • Enhanced safety: UN-marked packaging helps to protect people and the environment from the risks associated with hazardous materials transportation.
  • Reduced costs: By using packaging that is already certified to meet international standards, companies can avoid the need for additional testing and approval processes.
  • Simplified compliance: UN-marked packaging makes it possible for companies to comply with national and international regulations for transporting hazardous materials.
  • Overall, UN Specification Packaging plays a vital role in ensuring the safe and efficient transportation of hazardous materials around the world.

Our Phoenix packaging specialists design crates that can be transported worldwide by rail, road, sea, and air and can carry all goods included in the list of dangerous goods provided by UN Model Regulations..
