ASTM WK76565

    New Test Method for Standard Test Method for Marking Indelibility

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F02.50 | Committee F02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This test method will assess a packaging material and print systems ability to maintain legible content post exposure to environmental hazards.


    Package, print, artwork, legibility, indelibility


    Regulations (EU) 2017/745 and 746 require that "The particulars on the label shall be indelible, easily legible and clearly comprehensible to the intended user or patient." Currently, no test method exists which explicitly claims to assess indelibility.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
