ISO 10327 pdf download Air cargo — Main deck containers — Design and testing
1.1 This International Standard covers the minimum design and operational testing requirementsfor general purpose, base-restrained containers exclusively intended for the main or upper deck cargocompartments of main line civil transport aircraft, capable of being used by either airlines or shippersand requiring an airworthiness authority approval (certification).
NOTE 1 The metric equivalents for dimensions have been rounded up or down to the nearest millimetre,exceptin critical dimensions. Masses have been rounded up to the nearest kilogram and forces have been rounded up tothe nearest 10 N.
NOTE 2Though nothing technically prevents their being used for baggage, main deck containers are generallyused only for carriage of freight.
12This International Standard does not cover the performance requirements and ultimate load testingparameters for airworthiness authorities approval (certification), which are covered in ISO 21100 or; forunits approved prior to 2012, ISO 8097:2001. The design and operational testing requirements of thisInternational Standard are additional to the performance and certification testing requirements of thesenternationalStandards.
1.3 This International Standard does not cover containers with an overall height of 1 625 mm (64 inor less, that can be loaded on the lower deck compartments of main line civil transport aircraft, whichare specified in ISO 6517, nor air-surface main deck containers, which are specified in ISO 4128 andIS0 8323.
