A high-quality tech pack for professional brands and suppliers is well-structured, easy to read, and follows certain rules. There is no industry-defined standard and no best way of doing it. But specific information, formats, and structures can be found in every international brand’s tech packs. Common rules are applied in many technical specs of global players.
This checklist enables you to quickly assess whether your templates meet the latest industry standard. Through a simple checkbox logic, you’ll finally have a comprehensible overview of the strengths and development areas of your existing documents. Each commonly used section of a tech pack will be reviewed in terms of the mandatory information, optional information, and things to avoid.
