UN Certified Compliant Packaging for Return Devices
Used Medical Devices are classified as having been in contact with patients and are being returned to the manufacturer, or shipping elsewhere for disinfection, cleaning, sterilization, repair or evaluation.
According to the ICAO TI, in order for a used medical device to be excepted from the transport regulations, it must meet a few packaging criteria. The device must be stored in a package that is designed to remain intact regardless of the handling and weather conditions it may undergo during transportation. This package must be of sufficient quality that it is not negatively affected by the temperatures, pressures, vibrations, weather, loading and unloading normally experienced during transport. In order to ensure the durability of the package design, it must be subjected to a drop test of 1.2m. The package design passes the test if the package retains the used medical device and the infectious substances do not leak.
