What is BS 5609 labels?

BS5609 (British Standard 5609) is a specification for printed pressure-sensitive, adhesive-coated labels for marine use. Having current and accurate BS5609 labels is a necessity for businesses using containers that face marine immersion or harsh environments. This standard also specifies label base material.

Businesses need to meet the BS5609 certification to ensure that any chemical or drum labels are able to last in unforgiving environments, particularly those that are submerged underwater for extended periods of time.
