1. Packaging levels for HVAC and plumbing supplies
For HVAC and plumbing supplies, a distinction is made between the following packaging levels.
(All packaging levels can be traded in all parts of the HVAC and plumbing industry).
F‐Pack
'The consumer unit': the unit usually purchased by a consumer
and scanned at the shop counter (POS) or bought from a
tradesman or contractor. It should always be possible to pack an
F‐pack as a single package. Alternatively, those items that cannot
be included in a single combined package must be allocated their
own NRF number and GTIN. In the HVAC and plumbing industry
this is often described as the smallest saleable unit or
'sales unit'. F‐packs may also come in single packs or multi‐packs.
M‐Pack
'Wholesale unit' (e.g. a bag): the unit that may be traded in
the HVAC and plumbing industry by wholesalers, shops/warehouses
and construction sites. It contains several F‐packs. (The M‐pack also
has some special variants). Not all products have both an M‐pack and
a D‐pack.
D‐Pack
A 'trading unit': the unit (box) that can be traded in the HVAC
and plumbing industry by manufacturers/suppliers,
wholesalers, shops/warehouses and construction sites.
If the product also has an M‐pack, the D‐pack contains several M‐
packs. If the product does not have an M‐pack, the D‐pack contains
several F‐packs. (The D‐pack also has some special variants). Not
all products have both an M‐pack and a D‐pack.
T‐pack
A 'transport unit': the unit (e.g. a pallet) that is transported between
participants in the value chain. A T‐pack usually contains several D‐
packs, but may in some cases only contain F‐packs.
