Medical packaging must perform several functions, such as protection, product benefits, and reassure FDA guidelines. One thing that packaging professionals must consider when designing medical packages is child-resistant solutions.
Child safety is a crucial factor in medicine packaging. It is one of the best ways companies can reduce the risk of child poisoning.
Since its introduction in the early 1970s, child-resistant packaging has become a staple in medical packaging.
Hands-on Testing Must be Used in Child-Resistant Packaging
For companies to successfully launch their medical packaging, testing is needed. ISO 8317:205 is a testing standard for re-closable, child-resistant solutions for any medicinal product.
Under the observation of an experienced researcher, children are given a new, unused package to try and open within 5 minutes.
Child-Resistant Blister Packs
Child-resistant blister packs work differently from other solutions. Children typically don’t push tablets through the packaging foil as the design intends. As a result, packaging companies simply need to integrate either a simple or complex multilaminate.
