The Australian Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container Association (AFIBCA) was formed in 1986 by the companies that were manufacturing or importing bulk bags at that time. There was a need for a single voice in dealing with the regulatory bodies that controlled the shipment of products and to encourage industries to use safe products and handling practices. Australian Standard AS 3668-1989 for FIBC's was born out of this and was adopted by industries as the main guide used when choosing or using FIBC's. In 2019 this standard was updated and a revision, AS 3668:2019, was published on the 20th of December 2019
AFIBCA today is the source of information to its members on regulations for international shipments of product. Information is obtained from our close association with EFIBCA (Europe).
The mission of the Australian Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container Association (AFIBCA) is to promote the use of member's products and to serve as a source of information to its members and industry.
