UN marking

UN markings are applied to the packagings.

The marking indicates, that the packaging which bears it corresponds to a successfully tested design type, and that it complies with the regulations of (...) related to the manufacture, but not to the use of the packaging. Consequently, the marking does not necessarily state that the packaging may be used for any substance (...).

The purpose of the marking is to simplify the work of packaging manufacturers, reconditioners, packaging users, shippers and regulatory authorities.
