What is the APASS network?

The APASS network was designed by Amazon to help support vendors, sellers and manufacturers to obtain certification of their products as Frustration Free Packaging (FFP), Ships-In-Own-Container (SIOC) or Prep-Free Packaging (PFP). Smithers provides package testing in compliance with Amazon’s certification test methods.

  • Protected against damage (SIOC and FFP)
  • The correct size (SIOC and FFP)
  • Easy to open (FFP only)
  • Recyclable (FFP only).
