Växjöplast and child-resistant packaging
We obtained our first certificate for child-resistant packaging as early as 1989 in accordance with the then applicable Swedish standard SS 84 02 20. Between 2012-2014 all caps and closures for a larger number of bottles and other containers (cans, drums, etc.) were updated and re-certified. There is nothing that regulates who should hold these certificates and to make things easier for our customers, we have chosen to include this in our offer – to offer “packaging that makes life easier!”
In order to maintain and keep the certificates up to date, an annual update and supplementary addition is made with new bottles, caps and closures. This means that every year, we have a formal check and review with our customers to ensure that the packaging being used is covered by our certificate. Please note that an alteration to your packaging, for example, the material of which it is made or a geometrical alteration, will necessitate an update of the certificate.
For us, our work with child-resistant packaging is a continually on-going process, a pre-requisite for us and for you to feel secure with our products. All of our caps and closures with child-resistant functions are therefore tested and certified in accordance with current applicable standards – this in combination with the majority of bottles to which we have access, primarily on the Scandinavian market.
Interpreting the legislation and sharing of responsibility relating to child-resistant packaging is not easy. Emballator Växjöplast therefore offer training courses within this area. We help to explain terminology and provide information as to what applies.

We help you to select the right packaging that protects our children from harm in their home environment.
Certify your packaging
We offer all our customers the opportunity to include their child-resistant packaging on our certificate.
By providing information about the bottles that you use, we can, after assessment with our test institute, add an addendum to the certificate. The criterion for this to be possible, however, is that the bottle is judged to be included in the selection carried out regarding the volume of the bottle, the raw material as well as the screw thread.
Existing holder of the certificate
Before you carry out a change of an alteration to a bottle, this should be preceded by information to us to ensure that the packaging continues to be covered by our certificate.
Emballator Växjöplast sits on the SIS (Swedish Standards Institute) technical committee for consumer and transport packaging. Being part of this committee we are able to influence the standards for consumer and transport packaging, for example, for child-resistant packaging.
