Path to Package Integrity – Webinar

On-line IoPP webinar offers insight on how small a package leak is acceptable or if it is acceptable for quality assurance.

March 25, 2013   by Canadian Packaging Staff

When it comes to package integrity, what’s referred to as “level of assurance” can be rephrased as “what leak size still works for a particular product?” Gray areas exist, and it comes down to how much substrate or organisms will transfer through a leak, and at what level does this transfer of substrate or organisms affect the product.

So the real question becomes, What is the “Critical-to-Quality” leak size?

Oliver Stauffer will address these issues in the IoPP (Institute of Packaging Professionals) webinar “The Path to Package Integrity.”

His presentation will offer insight into understanding and defining the Critical-to-Quality leak size for various package and container formats, and also on how to fully understand package barrier. He will also discuss what happens when a package suffers from an integrity failure.

What you will learn:

  • Understanding and acting on Critical-to-Quality leak size;
  • Defining sterile barrier and integrity;
  • Characterizing leakage;
  • Identifying potential problems.
