Affixing the VDA label
The label is to be inserted in the label frame and, if appropriate, secured with at most 2 adhesive points. The adhesive points may not conceal important particulars, the dimension and arrangements of the label frame are also suitable for mechanical voucher reading.
No additional adhesive tags, papers or self-adhesive labels may be applied. All users of such identification marks cause quality losses by making unambiguous identification and automatic scanning more difficult. Staples are NOT allowed to be used on any boxes.
Recycling is rendered more difficult and costs result for sorting, cleaning and removal of adhesive residues.
For Mini- and Small boxes the VDA4902 label can be used. Then it is accepted to use the adhesive and attach the label to the box.
