Designing multi industry transport labels – second draft standard published

17 July 2014

In April 2014 the second draft of the standard NEN-EN 1573 for designing multi industry transport labels was published. This edition expands on the 2004 edition by providing advice on usage of a modularized multi industry transport label (MITL) that fulfils both product related requirements as well as transport requirements.
The standard specifies the general requirements for the design of MITLs containing linear bar code and two- dimensional symbols. The standard draws considerably on the content of ISO 15394. However, this European standard defines some features in a more precise manner for use in the European context (World Packaging Standardisation Newsletter, July 2014).
