BS5609 Approved Labels


BS5609 is a British Standard specification for the durability of labels on chemical containers when being transported by merchant shipping.

The specification stipulates that labels and markings on containers being shipped or stored in ‘Marine Environments’ must meet a certain standard for adhesion, resistance to abrasions and print permanence. Labels that comply with BS5609 are passed as suitably durable for purpose and are a crucial component of your due diligence when shipping chemicals. We supply a range of label options that will ensure total compliance with BS5609 through every stage of the labelling process from base, print and over-print labelling.

Call today for professional consultation on your requirements so that you can be sure that your labelling is compliant and appropriate to your needs.
