ISTA Procedure 3A (18-18)

Packaged-Products for Parcel Delivery System Shipment 70 kg (150 lb) or Less

Test Procedure 3A is a general simulation test for individual packaged-products shipped through a parcel delivery system. The test is appropriate for four different types of packages commonly distributed as individual packages, either by air or ground. The types include standard, small, flat and elongated packages. 3A includes an optional test combining Random Vibration Under Low Pressure (simulated high altitude). This tests the container’s (whether primary package or transport package) ability to hold a seal or closure and the retention of contents (liquid, powder or gas) without leaking.
