With the development of economy, more and more countries pay more attention to accidental injuries of children. In order to reduce or prevent children from ingesting something harmful or ever toxic , more and more countries have formulated corresponding regulations, especially on packaging regulations to prevent children from eating something toxic or harmful . For example, more and more countries such as the United States, the European Union, and the United Kingdom have established their standards and laws for packaging to avoid children eating what contains harmful or toxic ingredients in the packaging .


This kind of packaging products, commonly called CR (Child-resistant) packaging products, is a special type of packaging. Child-resistant packaging refers to the packaging which is designed to protect children while storing a certain amount of toxic and harmful substances (such as pesticides, cleaning agents, etc.) inside. Its structure ensures that it is difficult for most children to open or remove the contents within a reasonable time. It can reduce the risk of children consuming harmful substances to a certain extent because it’s designed to be difficult for children to open. Besides, it’s designed by most of manufacturers in such a way that most adults can use what is put in the kind of the packaging.


The test standards for CR includes European standard EN14375 (drug), EN862 (non-drug), EN ISO 8317, etc.; international standard ISO 8317; American standard ASTM D3475, CPSC 1700; Canadian standard CAN/CSA Z76.1 and other standards.


What is the most obvious feature of CR packaging? The answer is... THE LOCK!


CR packaging including packaging bags, screw-cap bottles, etc., generally contains products that are not accessible to children, so a "child lock" is required to prevent children from being poisoned or even killed by accidental ingestion.


Child lock zipper bags: opened by a lock.
