We are outlining how child resistant packaging is tested to ensure safety between your pharmaceuticals, cannabis and young children, 24/7 of the day for a peace of mind.

What is child resistant packaging?

Child resistant packaging is packaging that is designed to prevent children who are younger than 52 months (i.e. younger than 5 years old) from accessing its contents, but also made so adults have easier access to the contents contained within these child resistant packages. Child resistant packaging consists of many different safety mechanisms and barriers that prevent young children from gaining access to substances that are harmful to them. Using this type of packaging can lower the chances of young children gaining access and consuming harmful substances without having any knowledge.

Testing requirements for child resistant packaging

The testing requirements for child resistant packaging must pass third party certification to ensure it has met the requirements for child safety standards. For child resistant packaging to meet child-resistant standards, the packaging itself would have to be tested in a real-world scenario with children and adults. The packaging must be tested under normal conditions with a group of children between the ages of 42 to 51 months of age (i.e. between the ages of 3 to 5 years old). 80% of the children tested must not open the package during the full duration of the testing process in order for the packaging to pass child resistant testing. 

Why is testing child resistant packaging important?  

Testing child resistant packaging is very important to ensure that young children are protected against consuming toxic and harmful substances while also making the packaging accessible and easy to open for adults. By doing real-world testing to ensure that the child resistant packaging being tested does measure up to the regulatory standards. This guarantees that the packaging that will be sold and distributed will be safe around children and easy for adults and seniors to access the substances inside the packaging.
