Package Testing: Consultants That Deliver and Support

TEN-E has been a reliable source of package testing for the medical, pharmaceutical, and dangerous goods industries for over 30 years. Across those specialties, we offer extensive consultancy services that include auditing and quality control, package design and specifications, and guidance on interpreting regulations and data. We take the confusion out of meeting domestic and international regulatory compliance for all facets of packaging and international shipping.

We even help you determine safe modes of transport for your products; that means we care if delivery to your worldwide customers is successful. We just introduced a new division to our growing list of services, which is hazmat training.

Hazmat training is mandatory for all companies manufacturing and distributing goods that require dangerous goods packaging. Our instructors meet the regulatory training requirements found in §172.700 of the U.S. Department of Transportations’ Title 49 CFR for Non-Bulk Packagings and Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) intended for hazardous materials use. With training required every three years, and the possibility of high penalties if training is ignored, it’s wise to invest in education for your staff.

We offer the most up-to-date information and know-how to help you create a packaging solution that meets regulatory requirements and performs beyond expectations.
