A Council of FPA
Sterilization Packaging Manufacturers Council
Focused on the Safety of Flexible Sterilization Packaging
Development of Standards and Guidelines
The Sterilization Packaging Manufacturers Council (SPMC) was formed in June of 1994 as a council of FPA. SPMC's member companies are FPA members which specialize in packaging for the medical device industry.
SPMC focuses on the unique requirements and standards for sterilization packaging. Their guidance provides consistency to the development of sterilizable flexible packaging; improves understanding throughout the packaging supply chain; and ensures the quality and safety of flexible sterilization packaging. Some of SPMC's work is referenced by the International Organization for Standards (ISO) and has been incorporated into ASTM standards which have been accepted by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as Consensus Standards.
