Supplier News

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is organising a half-day training course on packaging specifications in St Kilda, Victoria in June.

To be held on Wednesday the 26th of June, the half-day course ‘Introduction to Packaging Specifications’ will be presented by Emeritus Professor Harry Lovell, OAM, FAIP.

Overview of the course

AIP’s half-day training course deals with the role and preparation of specifications across a range of packaging materials.

A specification can be defined as a document providing a description of material, machinery, equipment, process or product in terms of its required properties and/or performance.

A specification is a legal document between supplier and user and is necessarily comprehensive in terms of detail, physical characteristics, material composition, and also performance in the packaging process and subsequently to the final point of receipt. It is important that specifications are written in clear unambiguous language and identify the key requirements in recognised units and acknowledgement of established standards.


The course will cover basic specifications to the more complex requirements associated with the performance of packaging within the packaging line.

Who should attend?

The course is designed for those charged with the responsibility of the preparation (or monitoring) of specifications such as purchasing officers, technologists and production personnel.
