Definition statement
This subclass/group covers:
  • Containers, packaging elements or packages with auxiliary 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.
  • In this subclass, groups B65D 5/00, B65D 27/00, B65D 29/00, B65D 31/00 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.
