3.3.5.1 HIC Placement states "The HIC may be placed anywhere in the MBB, but should not be placed under, on top or touching a desiccant pouch." How do you assure that the HIC doesn't touch the desiccant pouch? Do you secure the HIC to the reel or to the inside of the MBB? Sorry for such a newbie question!!!

Just make sure they're in different parts of the bag before vacuum sealing. After the bag is sealed, neither will be going anywhere (unless your sealer isn't up to snuff and the bag leaks).

Thank You! We don't vacuum seal - we just heat seal. The standard doesn't require vacuum sealing, correct?

I don't believe it does, but don't quote me on that.

Vacuum sealers can be had for pretty cheap.

Too much vacuum can be very bad. It can create isolated pockets where the desiccant can not do anything. It can poke holes in the bag at corners. It can even pull moisture into the bag if too strong.
