What is ISO standard 780 - Pictorial marking for handling of goods ?

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical committees. ISO 780 is an international standard for handling and storage of packages and this standard contributes to Sustainable Development Goals ; specifically SDG-12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) , SDG-13 (Climate Action), SGD-9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) 

Packages are often marked with handling instructions in the language of the country of origin. While this may safeguard the consignment to some extent, it is of little value for goods consigned to, or through, countries using different languages, and of no value at all if people handling the packages are illiterate.

Pictorial symbols offer the best possibility of conveying the consignor's intention and their adoption will, therefore, undoubtedly reduce loss and damage through incorrect handling.

The symbols specified are in accordance with the rules of ISO/TC 145, Graphical symbols.

The use of pictorial symbols does not provide any guarantee of satisfactory handling; proper protective packaging is therefore of primary importance.
