3.2 product name brand name name given to a particular product or complete range of products
3.3 product type descriptive number or code given to a particular material produced to a particular specification
3.4 unit identification information, e.g. number or other code usually given on each unit (e.g. roll) during or after production, which allows the original manufacturer to trace at a later stage the production details, including place and date of production
4 Identification
4.1 Unique identification on delivery
For the purposes of positively identifying the product at the time of delivery to the purchaser, geosynthetics shall be supplied with the following information affixed (e.g. label) to each unit:
a) manufacturer and/or supplier;
b) product name;
c) product type;
d) unit identification;
e) nominal gross mass of unit, in kilograms;
f) unit dimensions (of material, not of package);
— roll goods: length x width (both in metres),
— other goods: number of items (e.g. sheets or fabricated bags or tubes) x length x width (both in metres), or area covered by the product;
g) product classification using terms and symbols defined in Iso 10318-1 and ISO 10318-2;
h) main raw material type(s) performing the function (for each component);
I) colour identification unique to the product name and type (only for products identified by colour marking).
4.2 Product marking for identification on installation
There shall be a means of positively identifying the product at the time of its installation, even if it is no longer in the original packaging.
The product name and type shall be marked on the product, e.g. by printing or engraving. The marking shall be easily legible and sufficiently durable to permit identification at the time of installation, and shall be repeated at regular intervals in machine direction of not more than 5 m.
For products where printing or engraving is impractical, the marking shall be a printed ribbon affixed to the roll or a colour marking on the product. A printed ribbon shall show the product name and type. A colour marking shall correlate with the product name and type identified by the colour marking on the label.
Where the product is further processed prior to delivery, e.g. cut, such that product marking is impractical, each unit shall nevertheless have a unique identification.
