Test the whole unitized load or the single packaged-product?
Our products are transported as a unitized load on a pallet.
If I choose 3E to test a unitized load, do I need to test the single packaged-product of the unitized load as well?
ISTA Test Procedure 3E is intended to be performed on a unitized load as a whole. If your packaged-product is only transported as unitized loads to its final destination then testing a single packaged-product from your unitized load might not be necessary. If your unitized load is broken down and packaged-products are distributed individually at any point then testing a single packaged-product from the unitized load to the appropriate procedure is recommended.
