Scope: <p>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.</p><p>This International Standard also provides methodologies and procedures for</p><list list-type="alpha-lower"><list-item><label>a)</label><p>determining the amount and minimization of substances or mixtures hazardous to the environment, and</p></list-item><list-item><label>b)</label><p>determining the amount of four heavy metals (lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium) in packaging.</p></list-item></list><p>The potential for such substances to be released into the environment is included in the assessment. The procedures are referenced in <xref ref-type="app" rid="sec_C">Annex C</xref>.</p><p>The process for packaging design, including material selection, is not part of this International Standard. The purpose is to help ensure and demonstrate that the packaging efficiently uses the selected material.</p><non-normative-note><label>NOTE 1</label><p>For the purposes of this International Standard, the substitution of one packaging material by another is not a basis for packaging optimization.</p></non-normative-note><non-normative-note><label>NOTE 2</label><p>Packaging material optimization can include increasing the weight or volume of packaging in order to reduce loss of goods.</p></non-normative-note><p>The procedure for applying this International Standard is contained in <std><std-ref>ISO 18601</std-ref></std>.</p>
