Regarding wine shippers. Would changing the corrugated direction of the insert effect the ISTA certification

Current wine insert is a folding wrap around of the wine bottle. Each fold is accross corrugation direction. Objective is to change corrugation direction so folds are with the corrugation. No paper weight is changing.

A change to the direction of the fluting would alter the performance charecteristics of the packaing system thus requiring a retest for certification purposes.
