1.1 This practice establishes requirements for packaging, packing, and marking intended to ensure proper and safe storage and transportation of copper and copper-alloy mill-products, both foreign and domestic, for direct shipment to government activities or shipment processed at a military activity or agency. This practice details the materials, methods, containers, and procedures for the preparation for shipment of copper and copper-alloy mill-products. Mill products wherein copper is the basic metal are within the scope of this practice. Commercial packaging establishes the minimum requirements that apply unless Level A or B packing is specified (see ).
1.2 The values given in inch-pound units are regarded as standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
