Hello All,

I have various extracts & a reasonable understanding of rule 41 but I have never had an official, complete copy of the actual code /guidance document.

I have done numerous web searches on where to get a copy, all to no avail :crybaby:

Does anyone know how to get a current copy? :uhm:

Thanks as ever

Richard

Simon,

I guess from the lack response, not many people are aware of Rule 41.. :doh:

Its similar to a certificate of conformity for corrugated packaging used in the US.

Effectively you print a stamp on the bottom of a case details such as Burst Strength, Combined weight of Facings and ECT strength.

Depending on the strength properties a case is then certified to go upto a certain size with a certain weight of product in it.

If you export to the states, it is likely that you have a circular printed code with this information.

I think this certificate also reduces your shipping insurance costs so is beneficial for US companies.

Sites like DHL do have some basic information but I'm after a full formal reference document :uhm:

Regards

Rich
