The US Military has packaging specifications to which companies packing products for military use, if so designated in their contract, should adhere. The central document is the MIL-STD-20731E Standard Practice for Military Packaging. This 183 page document has a great deal of information for contractors to follow, including definitions such as what is reusable, what is consumable, how to prepare the product for packaging, marking, etc. The 2073 document also includes the methods on how to package. For instance, Method 41 – “Watervaporproof bag, heat sealed. The item, preserved, wrapped, and cushioned as required in 188.8.131.52, shall be enclosed in a close fitting heat sealed bag conforming to MIL-DTL-117, Type I, Class E, Style 1, 2 or 3; or Type I, Class F, Style 1; or Type II, Class E, Style 1.
