This guide is intended to provide a standardized method and a set of basic instructions for performing internal hydrostatic pressure testing on Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) designs.
The current regulations (49 CFR 178.814) require testing of IBC designs but do not provide guidance or instructions on how to conduct the test. Rigid Intermediate Bulk Container Associations has approached ASTM to assist in developing this standard.
