Handling chemically engineered products requires knowledge and caution. It is important that products are correctly packaged, using suitable material for the contents, and that laws and ordinances are complied with. Should anything go wrong, there is a major risk of end consumers losing confidence in the brand.
Packaging with a substance or mixture that is sold to the general public and that is classified in accordance with CLP EC 1272/2008 must use child-resistant closures/packaging. Approval must always be provided for the packaging as a whole, not just the cap. In order for packaging to be deemed child-resistant, it must be tested, assessed and certified in accordance with the international standard ISO 8317 by an accredited test institute.
There are no regulations governing who is to hold the certificate for child-resistant packaging, but we have chosen to include this in our offering – packaging that makes life easier!
Interpreting legislation and the division of responsibility concerning child-resistant packaging is no easy task. At Emballator Växjöplast, we consider it important that our customers have the necessary knowledge about child-resistant products. This is why we have founded the EVP Academy. Our training course provides knowledge of what to consider when working with chemically engineered products and covers, among other things, laws and ordinances, material selection and which substances require child-resistant closures.
At Emballator Växjöplast, we have the necessary knowledge and experience to make us a trusted partner when it comes to packaging solutions for child-resistant products.
