It is packaging that gives flexibility to the shipper. Within parameters outlined in 49 CFR 178.601, you can ship inner containers different than those that were tested, when certain conditions are met. When using variation packaging, the shipper must follow the manufacturer’s packing and closure instructions. Failure to do so can result in fines and/or injury to property or persons.

Mike Thompson, Dangerous Goods, a Division of Berlin Packaging

No. 49 CFR 178.601 (g)(2) allows shippers to assemble packaging using inner containers that are different than those that were tested when certain conditions are met. This includes the type and amount of materials, amount and type of absorbent and cushioning, and more. When using variation packaging, the shipper must follow the manufacturer’s packing and closure instructions exactly. Failure to do so can result in fines and/or injury to property or persons.
