Westpak Keeps Customers Current On Industry Standards

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the ways Westpak continues to be a resource to our clients is by providing updates regarding revised test specifications. Our internal Standards Committee reviews common test specifications published by many different standards organizations. We have currently been communicating these changes through web blasts.  In the near future, we will be placing this information under the resources tab of our website. An example of this is the recently revised ASTM D6653 Test Method.

"ASTM recently released a new revision to 'Standard Test Methods for Determining the Effects of High Altitude on Packaging Systems by Vacuum Method - ASTM D6653/D6653M,'" reports Ms. Katie Tran, Life Science Division Manager and member of Westpak's internal Standards Committee.

"The scope of this standard is to determine the effects of pressure differential when packaged products are transported via certain modes of transport, such as commercial aircraft or by ground over high mountain passes," states Ms. Tran.  This new revision, 2013, has only editorial changes and no procedural changes that would affect testing.

For more information on this or other ASTM Standards, please contact Katie Tran, Division Manager at Westpak, Inc.
