Type P1, P2 and P4
This denotes a plastic bag with 1, 2 or 4 litres volume. The plastic material must be polythene. The thickness should be chosen so the bag is expected to cope with normal transport and material handling, but at least 0,1 mm. All bags must be properly sealed.

Corrugated cardboard box
