FEFCO Code

Printer-friendly version

FEFCO code is the internationally applied system for corrugated packaging design. It contains the design of the most common box types with a code number assigned to each design, making it an easy tool for the paper packaging industry.

The code was originally developed by FEFCO in the late 1960s in order to substitute long and complicated verbal descriptions of packaging construction with distinct codes and designs and create a common base for communication internally with customers all over the world. 

The 12th version of the FEFCO code reflects the developments in the corrugated industry, new technologies, market changes and more than a hundred new designs , including a new series related to retail and e-commerce. The code is an interactive document, with an overview page for each series highlighting the new codes. 

The FEFCO code is adopted by the International Corrugated Case Association ICCA.
