ISTA Testing Protocols


Our testing facilities and personnel meet the demanding requirements of the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA), the leading industry developer of testing protocols and design standards.

Amazon Testing


Sealed Air is a participant in the APASS (Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier) Network. Amazon created the APASS Network to provide vendors, sellers, and manufacturers with a list of companies and labs that can test Amazon’s certification program. Sealed Air is approved to test, design, and supply packaging materials that meet the requirements for Amazon’s Frustration-Free Packaging, Ships-in-Own-Container (SIOC), and Prep-Free Packaging initiatives.

In addition to Amazon, we also conduct UPS and FedEx-approved testing methods.
