Military Packager Accreditation Scheme (MPAS) Approved
MPAS, the Military Packager Approval Scheme, which was introduced in June 2012, is based on Defence Standard (Def Stan) 81-41 Pt 1-6. It replaces the MPCAS/DR14 standards formerly in place. Any companies which supply Military Level Packaging (MLP) for the Ministry of Defence (MOD) must be ISO 9001 certified and ensure that the packaging operation complies with MPAS.
The purpose of MPAS is to ensure that all contractors supplying materials requiring MLP to the MOD have suitable experience, training and demonstrable competence. MPAS also confirms that contractors are using effective packaging design and manufacturing processes, procedures and facilities.
