ISO 780:2015 Packaging — Distribution packaging — Graphical symbols for handling and storage of packages
ISO 780:2015 specifies a set of graphical symbols conventionally used for marking of distribution packages in their physical distribution chain to convey handling instructions. The graphical symbols should be used only when necessary.
ISO 780:2015 is applicable to packages containing any kind of goods, but does not include instructions specific to handling of dangerous goods.
Packages are often marked with handling instructions in the language of the country of origin. While this may safeguard the consignment in the areas using the same language, it is of little value for goods consigned to, or through, countries using different languages, and of no value at all if people handling the packages are illiterate.
Graphical symbols offer the best possibility of conveying the consignor's intention and their adoption will; therefore, undoubtedly reduce loss and damage through incorrect handling. Moreover, graphical symbols help ensure safety of workers, who cannot grasp such important information as structure, gravity centre, property, and strength of a package while handling distribution packages.
The graphical symbols specified are in accordance with the rules of ISO/TC 145/SC 3, Graphical symbols for use on equipment.
The use of graphical symbols does not provide any guarantee of satisfactory handling; safely and properly protective packaging is therefore of primary importance.
