SGS Certified for ISTA Standard 20 Insulated Shipping Container Testing
Date:6/7/2011

NEW YORK, June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SGS North America Inc. announced today that it has been certified to conduct thermal testing on insulated shipping containers used for transporting temperature-sensitive products such as pharmaceuticals in accordance with the new International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) Standard 20 certification/testing procedures and Standard 7E Thermal Profiles.

With the certification, insulated shipping container manufacturers can now engage SGS to:

  • Measure their products' thermal performance under Standard 20 guidelines, which standardize global performance testing for insulated shipping containers.
  • Assess each package's adherence to the new Standard 7E profiles, which reflect day/night and latitudinal temperature exposures in trucks, transit storage facilities and air cargo spaces as determined in a three-year ISTA shipping lane study.
  • Submit results to ISTA to certify that the package conforms to testing under Standard 20 using the Standard 7E profiles, enabling certified packages to carry the ISTA 7E Thermal Certification Mark.

Packages that receive the ISTA 7E Thermal Certification Mark are expected to have a competitive advantage because the mark will validate the container's performance, eliminating the need for manufacturers in sectors such as pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, medical and food to invest time and money in evaluating insulated packages themselves.

Testing will take place at SGS's flagship U.S. laboratory in Fairfield, N.J., which has passed an on-site audit by a Certified ISTA Thermal Transport Lab Auditor as required under Standard 20. SGS has also met the standard's Certified Thermal Professional training requirements and is equipped to provide documentation of testing protocols, data packages and reports in the required Standard 20 format.
