This European Standard specifies a procedure for assessment of packaging to ensure that the weight and/or volume of its material content is at the minimum commensurate with the maintenance of: functionality throughout the supply and user chain; safety and hygiene for both product and consumer/user; acceptability of the packed product to the consumer/user. The substitution of one material by another is not a basis for source reduction.
