UN Test
Several tests are applied to the UN Certified Big Bags in order to verify UN requirements such as ;
Top lift test, Tear test, Stacking test, Drop test, Topple test , Righting test

The test house authorised by the national government to carry out UN performance tests on its behalf and to issue National Test Certificates to UN standard by competent authorities will prepare a report which is the basis on which the certificate is issued. This report will describe in detail not only the specification of the Fibc tested but the test levels at which the Fibc passed. The certificate is unique to the type of Fibc tested and may only be used to cover the carriage of products within the limit of the UN test.
