The performance specifications and verification protocols for E005 category coolant packs type water-packs (ice-packs, cool-packs and warm-packs) were approved by the PQS Steering Group on 8 December 2008. A first revision was completed and approved on 18 June 2010. With this approval, all E005 products that are listed in the PIS 2000 edition (and new items added to the PIS since publication of 2000 edition) are subjected to a new review based on PQS procedures as described in "A guideline for manufacturers of insulated containers, ice-packs, cool-packs and warm-packs (WHO/PQS/E04-E05/GUIDE.1.3)". The PIS list of products for E004 and E005 is now considered invalid and replaced by the current published PQS list. Effective 8 December 2008, all new applications for water-packs must follow PQS procedures.
