The following levels of protection apply equally to preservation and packing.
This packaging provides maximum protection. It is needed to protect material under the most severe worldwide shipment, handling, and storage conditions. Preservation and packing will be designed to protect material against direct exposure to extremes of climate, terrain, and operational and transportation environments, without protection other than that provided by the pack. The conditions to be considered include, but are not limited to:
(a) Multiple handling during transportation and in-transit storage from point of origin to ultimate user.
(b) Shock, vibration, and static loading during shipment.
(c) Loading on shipdeck, transfer at sea, helicopter delivery, and offshore or over-the-beach discharge, to final user.
(d) Environmental exposure during shipment or during in-transit operations where port and warehouse facilities are limited or non-existent.
(e) Outdoor storage in all climatic conditions for a minimum of 1 year.
(f) Static loads imposed by stacking.
This packaging provides intermediate protection. It is needed to protect material under anticipated favorable environmental conditions of worldwide shipment, handling, and storage. Preservation and packaging will be designed to protect material against physical damage and deterioration during favorable conditions of shipment, handling, and storage. The conditions to be considered include, but are not limited to:
(a) Multiple handling during transportation and in-transit storage.
(b) Shock, vibration, and static loading of shipments worldwide by
truck, rail, aircraft, or ocean transport.
(c) Favorable warehouse environment for a minimum of 18 months.
(d) Environmental exposure during shipment and in-transit transfers, excluding deck loading and offshore cargo discharge.
(e) Stacking and supporting superimposed loads during shipment and extended storage.
This packaging provides minimum protection; It is needed to protect material under known favorable conditions. The following criteria determines the requirements for this degree of protection:
(a) Use or consumption of the item at the first destination.
(b) Shock, vibration, and static loading during the limited transportation cycle.
(c) Favorable warehouse environment for a maximum of 18 months.
(d) Effects of environmental exposure during shipment and in-transit delays.
