It is estimated that tens of thousands of accidental poisonings occur in children worldwide each year, most of them in the age of three.
Protecting the safety of children is one of the most important prevention measures for the country and every family.
Effective design of safety packaging bags is the main cause of effective reduction of child poisoning accidents. Poisoning incidents occur mainly in the pharmaceutical and cannabis industry.
Children accidentally open the normal “packaging bag” and accidentally ingest medicines, chemicals, cosmetics, toxic substances and poisoning cases, which are painful events that every family does not want to experience.
Child-resistant packaging is the last protection for children, and it is an important component of product safety. To ensure children’s safety, the packaging uses a “child-resistant” mechanism that prevents children from opening the package, reducing the risk of children accidentally opening and eating it.
Therefore, child-resistant packaging is receiving more and more attention today.
Yes, our bags are CFR 1700.20 Certified and use all CFR 1700.20 Certified child-resistant zipper-lock in our flexible packaging bags.
Child-resistant packaging was introduced in the United States in 1970. The Poison Preventive Packaging Act (PPPA) requires that products harmful to children be packaged in child-resistant packaging. A high number of accidents involving household, garden and automotive chemicals, as well as accidents involving drugs and other hazardous substances, provided the impetus for the legislative process. Since then, the frequency and severity of accidents have decreased significantly with the introduction of child-resistant packaging.
Testing procedures for Gozen Packaging child-resistant packaging are established in accordance with PPPA standards to ensure functional safety. These tests required 200 children between the ages of 42 and 51 months to attempt to open a package. If 80% of the population is unable to accomplish this task, the bag can be considered child-resistant. However, it is equally important that adults, especially older adults, are able to open and reinsert the package. Many other countries have followed the U.S. example, published in US 16 CFR § 1700.20, and have developed similar standards.
