ISTA Test

SKU CPHL2057 Categories , Tag

Service Scope

ISTA certification is one of the most well-known and implemented international parameters for the regulation of goods transportation. It consists of a series of tests that aim to establish quality standards with the purpose of guaranteeing safety during the distribution cycle. 

Obtaining the ISTA certification means that a company can provide visible proof (in the form of a label) showing that its product+packaging systems have undergone a series of tests to determine their ability to endure a normal distribution cycle .

SGS can offer physical and performance package testing with analytical and research services combined with the knowledge and test equipment necessary to properly test your package to ISTA shipping standards .

Test Description

ISTA 1 Series Non-Simulation Integrity Performance Tests challenge the strength and robustness of the product and package combination. The test series is not designed to simulate environmental occurrences, while it is useful as screening tests, particularly when used as a consistent benchmark over time. 

ISTA 2 Series protocols are Partial Simulation Performance Tests that include tests with at least one element of a 3-Series type General Simulation performance test, such as atmospheric conditioning or mode-shaped random vibration, in addition to basic elements of a 1-Series type Non-Simulation Integrity test.

Transit test laboratories in SGS equip various test instruments, including environmental chambers, compression machine, rotary and random vibration table, free fall drop tester, incline impact tester and mechanical shock, allowing SGS to offer transit tests such as: 

  • Atmosphere test to replicate environmental effects (temperature, humidity and pressure) 
  • Shock test to simulate handling, drop and impact; 
  • Compression test to evaluate warehousing stacking load hazard; 
  • Vibration test to assess distribution hazard of vibration during transportation.  

ISTA intentionally does not specify what constitutes product damage and package degradation. These determinations are dependent upon the particular product, package, distribution system, market, customers, and other factors and can vary widely. Therefore product damage and allowable package degradation must be defined by the shipper, manufacturer, damage claim group, and/or other stakeholders and interested parties. In most cases, the shipper/manufacturer is in the best position to define product damage due to detailed familiarity with the product.  

SGS can assist our clients to establish acceptance criteria to allow the evaluation of packaged-product specimens after performing the transit tests, and assignment of pass or fail results. 

Remarks

Only applicable test items will be conducted on selected product nature and destination market. Detailed test item list will be included in order confirmation email upon order purchase. If the battery is included, additional battery requirements shall be arranged.
