This standard is a component of HP Standard 011-0 General Specification for the Environment (GSE).
Other components of the GSE are HP Standard 011-1 General Specification for the Environment -
Restricted Materials and HP Standard 011-4 General Specification for the Environment –Product
Requirements.

3 General Packaging Requirements
The restrictions specified in this section apply to all packaging materials purchased by or on behalf of HP.

3.1 Restricted Materials. Materials listed in HP Standard 011-1 General Specification for the
Environment - Restricted Materials must not be used in HP packaging.

3.2 Ozone Depleting Substances in Packaging Materials. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and
Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) listed in HP Standard 011-1 General Specification for the
Environment ? Restricted Materials must not be used in plastic foam packaging materials; for
example, as foaming agents. Methyl bromide sterilization must not be used on wood packaging.

3.3 Heavy Metals in Packaging Materials. Packaging materials must not contain lead, mercury,
cadmium, or hexavalent chromium where the sum concentration of incidental lead, mercury,
cadmium, and hexavalent chromium is greater than 0.01% (100 ppm) by weight.

3.4 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). PVC must not be used in packaging. This restriction does not apply to
protective tape covers with a surface area equal to or less than 15 square centimeters (2.35 square
inches) and or weighing less than 1 g (0.035 oz).

3.5 Recyclable Materials. All materials used in the packaging systems must be recyclable. Choose
materials in which recycling systems are readily available. Do not use permanent glue or adhesives
to attach dissimilar materials such as foam cushions to corrugated.

3.6 General Material Coding. Where the following materials are used in packaging, the applicable
coding is required to be embossed or marked on all packaging components. The symbol, not
including the lettering, must be between 1.27 cm (0.5 in) and 2.54 cm (1 in) in height. Smaller
symbols are permitted when the part size does not allow the above minimum sizes requirements to
be met. Parts that are too small to allow a readable symbol are exempt. The symbol and the
lettering must be printed, molded or embossed into the base of a component or labeled. It must be
durable, clearly visible, and easily legible when the packaging is opened. The abbreviations must

3.7 Country-Specific Labeling
Certain countries have specific labeling requirements that must be met, in addition to the requirements
identified in Sections 3.1 through 3.6 of this document.
3.7.1 China
For paper-based packaging materials used for HP branded finished goods for distribution and sale in the
People’s Republic of China (PRC), the requirements in this section must be met.
For plastic packaging components, marking must be applied according to paragraph 3.5 of this standard.
For paper packaging materials, identification marking is required on the following:
? Shipping containers
? Bulk pack boxes
? Individual product packages such as folding cartons, blister cards, and printed paper-based
inserts for clamshells
? Corrugated paperboard, cardboard fiberboard and molded pulp internal packaging components
that are marked or printed with other information
Paper Packaging Material Codes according to National Standard of the People’s Republic of
China, GB 18455:2001:

China
Paper Packaging Material Guidance
Initials

Shipping cartons, Overpacks Retail,
Corrugated Fiberboard CFB packs
Corrugated Fiberboard CFB Layer pads dividers inserts
Non-Corrugated Solid Fiber
NCFB Stiffeners, corner boards edge guards
Board
Pad-pack, newsprint, tissue, molded
Paper WPP pulp
Paperboard PB Chipboard cartons, dividers
Prefer the use of CFB for corrugated
Corrugated Cardboard CB parts.


Size requirements for the Chinese mark:
The mark size is to be 40 mm by 40 mm. For especially large or small package component sizes, the
mark may be appropriately enlarged or reduced.
Components of the China mark:
The China mark for paper-based packaging materials consists of the chasing arrows triangle with the
appropriate alpha designators centered below the arrow. See the example. Placing the alpha designators
inside the triangle is also acceptable.




Page 4
HX-00011-02 01-Aug-2008




Use of the China mark with other international marks:
Use of the Chinese mark with other internationally required marks is acceptable as long as the China
requirements are guaranteed. The mark can be used in conjunction with the international alpha numeric
paper designation with or without the chasing arrow triangle. The following example is acceptable.




3.7.2 Japan
Material identification marks are mandatory on paper
and plastic containers and packaging, in addition to steel
and aluminum containers and PET bottles. Marks are
mandatory only on packaging of products for household
use. Packaging going to business consumers
(containers and wrapping of merchandise consumed
for the purpose of business activities) is exempt
from the marking requirement.
The Society of Plastics Industry (SPI) code is allowed on
PET bottles, but should be conspicuous (unlike under
the Federal Trade Commission guidelines).
The guidelines for the Japanese material labeling
requirements indicate the following major points:
1. The vertical size of the marks shall be 6 mm (0.24
in) or more for printing and 8 mm (0.31 in) or more
for embossing.
2. There are exemptions for packaging that has no
existing printing, is too small (less than 50 cm2), or
when, due to shape, affixing the label is not possible. However if any of these packaging components
are part of a packaging system ( such as an outer film with no
labeling, bottle, and small cap) the exemptions do not apply. Either
each component must be labeled or:
? For packaging that is either too small or of an odd
shape, the identification mark shall be placed on another
packaging component in addition to its own mark.
? Marks for two or more packaging components may be
placed on either component if they are to be discarded
at the same time.



Page 5
HX-00011-02 01-Aug-2008



3. Although not mandatory at this time, indication of material under the mandatory marking is preferable
by using signs prescribed by JIS 6899-1 2000 (ISO 1043-1 1997).

100% corrugated cardboard is exempt from required marking, as are paper packs for drinks if they do not
contain aluminum.
Note: A corrugated box with an inseparable paper laminate is considered a composite. If the paper
laminate weighs more than the box, then the paper laminate must be marked with the paper identification
mark.
3.7.3 Korea
South Korea requires a Separate Discharge Mark (shown below) for containers of certain products and
“buffers? for electronic equipment. The requirements of the Separate Discharge Mark System are
provided in the Presidential Enforcement Decree of December 18, 2002. The mark must be displayed
with the general material coding mark, as shown here.




Electronic equipment refers to products that are powered by electricity and utilize electronic motions
generated using electronic tubes or semiconductors. They include industrial machinery and tools
(computers, communication machinery and tools, electronic applied machinery and tools, and so forth) as
well as household machinery and tools (televisions, refrigerators, washers, audios, and so forth).
The scope of electronic products covered by this “buffer labeling requirement? includes all end-use
electronic equipment (for consumer and commercial use) but excludes parts and supplies of electronic
equipment. For example, a redundant power supply or an external hard disk drive, would be covered;
however packaging for internal hard disk drive and other optional internal components are exempt.
Exemptions to the separate disposal labeling requirement include the following:
Packaging materials whose surface is less than 50 cm2 (7.72 in²).
?
? Packaging components with a capacity or volume less than 30 grams (1.06 oz) or 30 milliliters
(1.01 fl oz).
? Packaging material on which it is technically difficult to print, engrave, or label due to elements or
structural properties.
? Film or sheet type packaging materials that are not printed, engraved, or labeled in the process of
manufacturing, use, import, and sale. (Originally, all packaging materials that are not printed,
engraved, or labeled in the process of manufacturing, use, import, and sale, which was referred
to as “unfigured packaging material,? were exempted. An amendment on Dec. 17, 2003 narrows
the definition of “unfigured packaging materials? to only “film/sheet type.?)
? Wrap film packaging materials with a thickness less than 20 microns (µm).
Shopping bags and wrappings filled at the point of sale by sellers are exempt from mandatory recycling,
and thus, are exempt from the labeling requirement.



Page 6
HX-00011-02 01-Aug-2008


The scope of marking requirements covers foods and beverages, agricultural produce, dairy and fishery
products, detergents, cosmetics (excluding glass containers), shampoos and conditioners for pets, drugs,
butane gas, and pesticides that are packed with packaging materials composed of a paper pack (limited
to paper packs that are coated and pasted with synthetic resins or aluminum leaves), metal containers,
glass containers or plastic resin, and electronic equipment “buffers.?
A "buffer" is defined as any packing materials that are made from foam-like synthetic resins, which are
made of beads containing hydrocarbons such as butane, hexane, pentane, and so forth, and are puffed
by applying heat or by other means. Examples of "buffer" materials are expanded polystyrene (EPS),
polystyrene paper (PSP), expanded polyethylene (EPE), and expanded polypropylene (EPP).
The Korean text below the triangle reads “separate disposal.? Material type abbreviations (PET, HDPE,
LDPE, PP, PS, PVC, OTHER, Metal, Fe, Al, Paper, Paper pack, or glass) must be indicated inside the
triangle. Material types, other than plastic resins, must be written in Korean. The symbol (excluding the
“separate disposal? text below it) must be larger than 8 mm in width and length. The height of the
“separate disposal? Korean text must be one fourth of the width of the symbol. The extension of each side
of the symbol is a regular triangle, whose inside angle is 60° and outside angle at the bended part of the
arrow’s end is 120°. The color of the mark must be distinct from other colors used on the packaging, so
as to make the mark clearly visible (however, this is not applicable to engraved or embossed labels).
The label is to be located on the front or side flank of the component, unless it is impossible, in which
case the mark could be located on the bottom or lid of the package.
If there are multiple separable components, each component must bear the mark.
If it is impossible to label each component, only the major component is to be labeled, using the symbol
for its material type, together with the role/function name (in Korean characters) and abbreviation letters
of the material types of the other unlabeled components, separated by a colon
(:), adjacent to the symbol. This is referred to as Inclusive Marking, as shown
in the example to the right.
For composites, “OTHER? shall be used inside the mark. Note that paper-
plastic composites are limited only to paper with plastic layer or coating on both
side of the paper.
Producers and importers that wish to use this “separate disposal? label on
packaging material that is not required to be labeled must apply for its use
through ENVICO (Korea Environment & Resources Corporation). Producers
The meaning of Korean
and importers may voluntarily label other packaging elements (such as characters at the lower
packaging elements not required to bear the “Separate Disposal? label) with left corner is “pump?.
material identification, empty space ratio, and number of layers.
3.7.4 Taiwan
Taiwan requires the use of a four-arrow symbol on all containers (either on the container itself, the inner
or outer wrapping, or on the packaging label) that are subject to recycling under the Waste Act.




Obligated packaging materials are:
? Aluminum
? Steel (refers to steel sheet)
? Glass
? Paper (waxed, laminated/coated with plastic, or laminated with aluminum)



Page 7
HX-00011-02 01-Aug-2008


? Aluminum Foil Pack (such as Tetra Pak®, paper/aluminum foil/plastic composite)
? Plastics: PET, EPS (for disposable dishware), PS, PVC, PE, PP, or other plastics
? Plant fiber

Containers are defined as “packaging that is made from [specified] materials, is used to hold, and is not in
the form of bag, film, cloth, and foil.? Containers do not include those with a volume of over 17 liters (4.5
gallons). This does not apply to packaging such as cushions.
The four-arrow symbol must be marked on all subject containers and packaging sold on the Taiwan
market, no matter whether they are sold to end-users or business-users (such as restaurants or
business stores). The manufacturer must label the packaging correctly and pay the corresponding fees.
3.7.5 Slovakia
Slovakia requires the use of a disposal symbol ? the Tidyman symbol, which in Slovakia means "this
packaging must be put in a collection bin after use" ? on all commercial and retail packaging.




Exemptions from marking:
Packs with a surface of less than 100 cm2 (15.5 in²); packs with a capacity that does not exceed 50 ml
(1.7 fl oz); inner fixings, components and inner layers if these are not printed or embossed; plastic film
that is not printed or that bears no label; packaging ancillaries such as labels or hang tags; and packaging
components with a weight not exceeding 5 g (0.18 oz).

3.8 Packaging and Pallets Made of Wood

Except when designated by HP for domestic use solely within the country of origin, or where the shipping
entity has specifically determined that the country of destination will accept untreated pallets, all
packaging and pallets made of wood must be treated and marked in accordance with the provisions of
the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) #15: Guidelines for Regulating Wood
Packaging Material in International Trade.




The mark must include the following:
? IPPC symbol
? ISO two-letter country code followed by a unique number assigned by the National Plant
Protection Organization (NPPO) to the producer of the wood packaging material, who is
responsible for ensuring appropriate wood is used and properly mark



Page 8
HX-00011-02 01-Aug-2008


? The IPPC abbreviation for Heat Treatment (HT)

Note: Methyl bromide (MB) fumigation is not allowed.
Formaldehyde must not exceed the emissions requirements as defined in Table 1 and 2 in the Airborne
Toxic Control Measure to Reduce Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products, sections
93120-93120.12, title 17, California Code of Regulations. This requirement applies to wooden materials,
pallets, wood packaging made of plywood, pressed wood, and fiber board after 31 December 2008.

f. The Roman Numeral indicates the EPS meets the energy performance requirements at all
nominal voltages/frequencies on the nameplate (for example, 115 V/60 Hz and 230 V/50 Hz).
If an EPS meets different performance requirements at the different nominal
voltage/frequency levels, then two marks should be indicated. For example, an EPS meeting
efficiency level V at 115 V/60 Hz only, and meeting efficiency level IV at 230 V/50 Hz would
use these marks.




All external power supplies (EPSs) shall be identified with the following basic information displayed
permanently, legibly, and conspicuously on an accessible place on each EPS unit:
? Manufacturer’s name, brand name, or trademark (which shall be either the name, brand, or
trademark of the listed manufacturer or, if applicable, the designated manufacturer).

law include: Desktop PCs, Notebook PCs, Tablet PCs, Displays, TVs, Thin Clients and Blade PCs. The
scope of Japanese PEUR law applies to all sales of products within scope regardless of the market
segments where these products are sold.
The Japanese PEUR law requires the use of a Japan Red Mark label to be physically applied to the
product chassis if the product does not comply with the EU Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS).

Figure 2: Japan Red Mark




Specifications for use of the Japan Red Mark label on the product (chassis):
The Japan Red Mark label must be:
? Applied to the “main unit? (system unit) and is not required to be applied to accessory items (such
as keyboards, mice, subwoofers, power supplies, and so forth) when bundled or when sold as
stand-alone accessories.
? Visible, ?15 mm wide, and placed close to the product identification (SKU, model number, or
other important information).
? Distinguishable (contrasting) from the background color of the label or surface to which it is
applied.
The color of the Japan Red Mark label shall be Yellow Red (specified in Table 1 of JIS Z 8102
(representative color code for Yellow Red is 2.5YR 5.5/13).
If it is impossible or difficult to use the specified yellow red color, it is acceptable to use another easily
distinguishable color (monochrome and contrasting from background) provided the color is not green.
3.4.2 Mercury Containing Product Label
Any products containing elemental mercury that are sold in North America shall be labeled with a mercury
warning label. Examples include LCD displays, Notebook PCs with LCD displays, integrated PCs with
LCD displays, digital projector lamps, fluorescent light fixtures (including those sold as replacement
parts), printers, multifunction imaging products, and scanners.
Note: Products with mercury-containing backlights for LCD displays with a screen size less than 7 inches
diagonal do not have to be labeled (on the product).

Figure 3: Product Label Graphic for Mercury




3.4.2.1 Product Mercury Label Specifications
Text portion of the label shall be 10 points, minimum.
The label must be visible to the user. Including the label on the back side of the product or the bottom of a
Notebook PC is acceptable. The label cannot be “hidden.? For example, locating the label in the battery
well of a Notebook PC or on an interior nonvisible surface of a scanner is not acceptable.
The text portion of the label “Lamp contains Mercury, Dispose of Properly? can be placed in close
proximity to an existing CENELEC compliant WEEE “wheelie bin? label (shown in Figure 1). The text
portion of the label should be placed below or to the side of the crossed out “wheelie bin? label.
3.4.3 China RoHS Product Labeling Requirements
For all HP Products that are within scope of the Chinese Law ? Management Methods for Controlling
Pollution by Electronic Information Products (China RoHS), products manufactured after March 1, 2007 or
products “put on the market? in China shall be labeled according to the requirements specified in this
section.
Products that are in scope of the China RoHS labeling requirements include all main products (units),
accessory and option products, and spare parts sold for revenue outside of warranty coverage. Blank
CD/DVD media are considered electronic products and must follow these requirements. Accessory or
option products that do not carry electrical current, such as a notebook carrying case or a monitor stand
with no electrical connections, are considered out of scope.
Exceptions:
Products that are of irregular shape (which do not have a flat surface large enough to accommodate the
Environmental Protection Use Period (EPUP) label; such as a USB cable) or have a surface area less
than 50 cm2, may place the EPUP label in documentation that accompanies the product rather than on
the product itself.
Individual components of a product, such as a memory module that is part of a PC, are not required to
bear the EPUP label when they are sold as part of another product. They are required to bear the EPUP
label if they are sold as a stand-alone accessory.
3.4.3.1 EPUP Label
The EPUP label contains a number that identifies a period, measured in years, from the date of
production. There are several acceptable ways to define the EPUP period. HP’s calculated EPUP number
is ?10? for personal and office printers, supplies, PCs, and notebooks. HP's calculated EPUP number is
"5" for batteries. HP's calculated EPUP number is "50" for servers and industrial printing devices. The
EPUP logo shall not be colored any shade of green.
The labeling requirements are defined by Chinese Standard SJ/T 11364-2006. The minimum label
diameter is 5 mm. Contrasting colors are acceptable. If the label is molded into plastic, contrasting colors
are not required.




Page 17
HX-00011-04 01-Aug-2008


Figure 4: Examples of the EPUP (Environmental Protection Use Period) Label




3.4.3.2 Date Code Label
A product Date Code label is required on an exterior surface of the product for any products containing
any Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6), Mercury (Hg), Polybrominated Biphenyls
(PBB), and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) in concentrations over 1000 ppm and (100 ppm for
Cd) measured at the homogenous material level.
Any product requiring an EPUP label, also requires a Date Code label that represents the date of
production or the date of packaging on either the exterior of the product or the product carton.
Compliance with HP serial number formats that embed a date code in the serial number is sufficient to
meet the China RoHS date code labeling requirement. See HP Standard 006-1 Bar Code Requirements
for Product Numbers and Serial Numbers.
Products that do not contain RoHS materials over threshold levels (see Table 11) have no unique date
code requirements.
3.4.3.3 Optional “e? Label on Products
Electronic products that do not contain any of the RoHS materials above the threshold levels indicated in
Table 11 may bear the “e? label on the product.

regulations, as defined in section 5.2.3.
Korea’s RoHS Declaration of Compliance contains both the Korean and English formats. See Table 22
for an example.
Declaration Template Field Guidance -- Korean Version
All cells shaded light gray need to be updated on a product-by-product basis. The layout of the Korean
page is identical to the English page, so relative positioning can be used to complete the pages and
identify the content of the cells on the Korean page. All light gray cells on the Korean page should have
entries identical to the English page, without any translation, except as indicated below:


Model Name (Number)
Replace the text "Series" with the equivalent Korean text, as shown in the example.

Example: A6000 시리?
Declaration Template Field Guidance -- English Version
All cells shaded light gray need to be updated on a product-by-product basis. All other cells should be
regarded by the GBUs as fixed values and should not be modified. This section provides guidance on a
cell-by-cell basis for all cells that should be modified by GBUs.

create a declaration that can be used to credibly cover a range of products.
Example: A6000 Series
d. First Release Date (dd.mm.yyyy)
Enter the volume customer shipment date of the indicated product series in "dd.mm.yyyy" format.
Example: October 20, 2007, would be entered as "20.10.2007". In cases where "volume customer
shipment date" is not a recorded date, or initial customer-ready evaluation dates are shipped into country
prior to such date, the entered date should precede the earliest date that the indicated product will reach
customs in Korea.

HX-00011-04 01-Aug-2008


e. Product Weight (kg)
Enter the weight of the estimated average configuration, excluding packaging, documentation, and any
non-standard accessories. Power cords and external power adapters should be included. In the case of
desktop PCs, standard keyboards that ship with the unit should be included.
If multiple model names were listed in the "Model Name" field, one weight value may be entered if the
weights are approximately the same. If the weights differ by more than .50 kg, multiple weights should be
entered, with the series designator indicated in parentheses after each weight, as shown in the example.
f. Declaration Date (dd.mm.yyyy)
Enter the date the declaration is signed "dd.mm.yyyy" format. Example: October 20, 2007, would be
entered as "20.10.2007".

L Initial release. This document was released at Revision L to be consistent with
01-Aug-2008 other standards in this series. It was created to capture all product environmental

substance content labeling, regulatory notices and declarations, and product
performance requirements (energy efficiency).
