This document establishes safety requirements for the main types of form, fill and seal machines, fill and seal machines and auger fillers, volumetric cup fillers, nett weighers and multi-head weighers which are frequently fitted to these machines.

Form fill and seal machines:

— flow wrapping machine;

— vertical form, fill and seal machine;

— horizontal sachet form, fill and seal machine;

— thermoform, fill and seal machine;

— tubular bag form, fill and seal machine;

— mandrel form, fill and seal machine.

Fill and seal machines:

— pre-made bag, erect, fill and seal machine;

— cup or tub fill and seal machine;

— sack fill and seal machine.

Filling machines commonly fitted to form, fill and seal machines and fill and seal machines:

— auger filler;

— volumetric cup filler;

— nett weigher;

— multi-head weigher.

Other types of form, fill and seal machine which are described in 3.3 have similar hazards to these machines and Clause 4 indicates which clauses of this standard are applicable to these machines.

This document covers the safety requirements for machine design, construction and all phases of life of the machines including installation, commissioning, operation, adjustment, maintenance and cleaning.

This document applies to machines manufactured after the date of issue of this document.

Exclusions

This standard does not apply to:

— blow mould fill and seal machines;

— bulk container fill and seal machines;

— cartoning machines;

— food depositors, including volumetric piston depositors;

— thermoforming machines.

This document does consider hazards due to dust from the products being packed in these machines and modified atmosphere gases, but does not consider other hazards caused by the product being packed.

The transport stability of packages is a vital part of transport safety and the possibility of securing the cargo on different types of Cargo Transport Units (CTUs). This European standard specifies the requirements and different methods for testing the transport stability of packages. A package means the complete product of the packing operation, consisting of the packaging and its contents prepared for transport. The transport stability of the packages is divided to different levels depending on the capability to withstand the forces during the transport. This transport stability of the packages requires different types of CTUs and/or securing methods to obtain a safe cargo securing during the entire transport. Before the package is prepared for the transport it can be defined as a handling unit without any transport packaging material to obtain transport stability. The minimum requirement for the stability of the handling unit is set to obtain a safe handling both before and after the transport. The aim of the different test methods is to define the Transport Stability Level (TSL) of a package or handling unit.
