Packaging Management Guidelines

This recommendation aims to define the essential preconditions for efficient packaging management such as master data management as well as pool installation and maintenance.

It also describes the core operational processes such as packaging agreement, packaging accounting and the empty packaging supply chain.

As each partner has their own system solution, whether using standard or proprietary software, the focus of this recommendation is the description of common process patterns which enable the use of standardised messages in the information exchange between partners.
