Westpak Is Expanding HAZMAT Testing To Meet Demand From The Medical Device Industry
Date:6/11/2013

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical products may contain hazardous materials (HAZMAT) that are regulated under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).  The packaging systems may also be subject to several shipping rules and requirements from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), which follows the United Nations (UN) guidelines.  Westpak, Inc., is expanding their HAZMAT testing capacity in response to these growing needs.

Some medical products include hazardous materials that can range anywhere from animal tissue to lithium batteries to corrosive substances.  These products, which contain hazardous materials in an amount that is regulated by the Department of Transportation, will be subjected to specific shipping test procedures and steps such as internal pressure and vibration tests. Several steps need to be taken to verify that the product meets the necessary requirements set by the UN to ensure safe global shipments. 

"Westpak can help you determine if your product is regulated and determine if it will need to go through testing per 49 CFR 178.601," states Andrew Thomas, test engineer.  "If testing is required, Westpak can also guide your company through the steps necessary to certify your package system and ensure that it successfully meets the requirements listed in the standard," added Thomas.

If you would like assistance to determine if your package would be subject to these regulations, contact Jorge Campos at Westpak, San Jose - 408 224 1300 or Andrew Thomas at Westpak, San Diego – 858 623 8100.
