NOTE
-
In this subclass, the indexing codes of B65D 2519/00004 - B65D 2519/00995 should be added, if applicable

This subclass covers:
- containers, packaging elements or packages with auxilliary means or provisions for displaying articles or materials;


- methods of packaging which are wholly characterised by the form of the package produced or the form of the container or packaging element used, as distinct from the operations performed or the apparatus employed, which are covered by subclass B65B


This subclass, which is intended to be as comprehensive as possible, only excludes containers or packages of a nature clearly confined to a single other subclass, which are classified in that subclass

In this subclass, groups B65D 5/00 , B65D 27/00 , B65D30/00 or B65D 65/00 include constructional features of foldable or erectable container or wrapper blanks as well as the containers or wrappers formed by folding or erecting such blanks

Containers, packaging elements or packages classified in group B65D 85/00 , are also classified according to the constructional or functional features, if such features are of interest [6]

In this subclass, the following terms or expressions are used with the meanings indicated:

- "rigid or semi-rigid containers" includes:
a. containers not deformed by, or not taking-up the shape
of, their contents;
b. containers adapted to be temporarily deformed to expel
their contents;
c. pallets;
d. trays;
- "flexible containers" includes:
a. containers deformed by, or taking-up the shape of, their
contents:
b. containers adapted to be permanently deformed to expel
their contents;
- "packaging elements" includes:
a. elements, other than containers, for covering, protecting,
stiffening, or holding together articles or materials to
be stored or transported;
b. packaging materials of special type or form not provided
for in other subclasses;
- "packages" includes:
a. combination of containers or packaging elements with
articles or materials to be stored or transported:
b. articles joined together for convenience of storage or
transport;
- "paper" includes materials, e.g. cardboard, plastic sheet
materials, laminated materials, or metal foils, worked in
a manner analogous to paper;
- "large containers", in groups B65D 88/00 or B65D 90/00 , means
containers having about the size of containers used in container
traffic, sometimes referred to as freight, forwarding or "ISO"
(International Standardization) containers, or larger
containers [3]

Tamper-indicating means for containers or closures are classified in the group appropriate to the type of container of closure, e.g. B65D5/43 , B65D 5/54 , B65D 17/00 , B65D 27/30 , B65D 27/30 , B65D 27/34 , B65D 33/34 , B65D 41/32 , B65D 47/36 , B65D 49/12 , B65D 51/20 , B65D 55/06 [5]
