Packaging standard will aid medical devices industry

19 April 2018

ASTM International’s committee on primary barrier packaging (F02) has approved a new guide that will help validate test methods for packaging on medical devices. This will help professionals who specify certain packaging as well as those who regularly test packaging, ultimately helping support quality and safety of products.
According to ASTM International member Daniel Burgess of Boston Scientific, there had previously been no standard explicitly focused on validating packaging test methods. The new standard (soon to be published as F3263) will provide guidance specifically for validating attribute (pass/fail) and variable packaging test methods (ASTM Standardization News, May/June 2018).
