ISTA 1 Series Integrity Test Procedure

The entire document shall be read and understood before proceeding with a test.

There are three sections: Overview, Testing and Report

Overview provides the general knowledge required before going into the testing laboratory and

Testing presents the specific instructions to do the testing in the laboratory and

Report indicates what data shall be recorded to submit a test report to ISTA.

ISTA Test Procedures and Test Projects are the worldwide leaders in Performance Tests for Packaged-Products.

Two systems of weights and measures are presented in ISTA test procedures. They are the English system (Inch-Pound) and the international system SI (Metric). Inch-Pound units are shown first with Metric units in brackets, except in some tables where they are shown separately.

• Either system may be used as the unit of measure (standard units), but

• The standard units chosen shall be used consistently throughout the procedure.

• Units are converted to two significant figures and

• Not exact equivalents.
