Packaging Requirements

Packaging Requirements

The D37522-6 is intended as the primary packaging standard for use by all suppliers providing product to The Boeing Company and in no way relieves the supplier of product quality or performance. The Enterprise Packaging Team will partner for success with suppliers to ensure compliance with the D37522-6.
This standard covers the basic packaging and labeling requirements and instructions followed by all suppliers in the preparation of products for shipment to The Boeing Company and our customers as directed. The standard considers the following criteria in selecting packaging:

  • Ergonomics / safety of employees when removing parts from the packaging
  • Orientation and ease of access to parts when handling
  • Packaging in compliance with ASTM D3951 – Standard Practice for Commercial Packaging

Supplier Management or procurement organization shall reference D37522-6 in purchase documents as a supplier packaging requirement. This document does not apply to personnel use items, janitorial, and basic supplies, and similar commodities which are not intended to be incorporated into Boeing products or services.
