    Chapter 2 - Cotton value addition - Cotton bale packaging 

    International Standard ISO 8115-3:1995(E) specifies that for identification purposes each bale of cotton shall have a mark that identifies the shipping lot. The mark should be identical to those on the bill of lading, the delivery order and other shipping documents.

    The standard also stipulates that the marking colour or ink shall not penetrate through the protective wrapping, and that all bales shall be marked at the same position. The ISO standard further requires each bale to have a label giving the bale number in figures and barcode, along with gin number and/or name. United States cotton bales are permanently identified with unique bale identifiers that are consistent with the United States ginning and USDA records.
