Primary and secondary packaging for disposable gloves

Level: Core

This requirement is set so that primary and secondary packaging shall be designed with appropriate materials  for the disposable gloves to maintain the correct degree of purity (level of sterility for sterile gloves) to avoid contamination, and to reduce the environmental impact from the packaging materials. It is important that the primary and secondary packaging are labelled with relevant information and symbols to ensure correct protection and use of the gloves, in accordance with the guidance provided in the stated standards. It is also important that the secondary packaging is available in different sizes, to minimise the risk of wastage, which also applies if there is excess filling in the secondary packaging.
