Material testing services are now backed up to the hilt by legislation and mandatory requirements, not just in one national port, but across the world. Undoubtedly, given the rise in terrorist activities and the phenomenally quick rate at which diseases are able to spread from one end of the earth to the other, package testing, supported by legislation and mandatory requirements is not only necessary but extremely helpful.
There is expertise and experience in the handling of dangerous goods as well as medical packages. At ports of entry, all containers are thoroughly assessed in order to protect both product and brand, as well as public. The testing processes extended further. They ensure that safe and reliable transport of materials is taking place inland. Expert packaging is by now well informed through the meeting and exceeding of regulatory requirements.
Products and packages are tested to ensure that they are able to perform safely and securely under a number of environmental conditions. A large part of the regulated packaging and testing industries will be catering for the medical and pharmaceutical sectors of the health services industry. Careful packaging and testing will also be catered for within the food services industry, again under regulatory conditions.
More and more, from one developed economic zone to the next, distribution networks are being kept safe and reliable under some of the most formidable and strictly guarded conditions. The quality assurance technicians also consult regularly on proper shipping documentation required and different compliance regulations (from port to port). In the US at least, regulation bound technicians and their companies are ISO certified in terms of government regulations and as a 17025 company.
Finally, when you think about it, when last have you heard of some or another portside calamity or disaster occurring? Food for thought perhaps.
