Perritt Labs Announces Child Resistant Packaging Seminar to Be Held on May 5th, 2016 in Washington D.C.

Hightstown, NJ – February 26, 2016 - Perritt Labs will be holding a seminar on May 5th 2016 in Washington D.C. For thirteen years in a row, the response to our course has been overwhelmingly positive. In attendance are participants from the pharmaceutical, clinical, generic, unit packaging, and household products industries. The information presented, in a small classroom setting, proved to be a valuable asset to everyone present. Perritt Labs is thrilled to offer this beneficial class on the requirements, regulations, and intricacies of today’s child resistant packaging.  

Child-resistant packages will save an even greater number lives because they are being redesigned to be easier for adults to use, but no easier for children to open. The redesign is the result of changes in testing protocols made by the Consumer Products Safety Commission in response to complaints that child-resistant containers are too difficult to open. The change, which will affect all medicine packaged and is is an effort to get more elderly people, especially grandparents of small children, to use child-resistant containers.  It is very important that older adults be able to use the packaging, because the medicines that older adults take, especially cardiovascular drugs, diabetes drugs and analgesics, can be fatal to children in small doses.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has stated in a press release that "There is no such thing as child-proof packaging. So you shouldn't think of packaging as your primary line of defense. Rather, you should think of packaging, even child-resistant packaging, as your last line of defense.”

Founded by Dr. Alexander Perritt Ph. D  Perritt Laboratories is not only the pioneer in their industry, they are the pre-eminent child-resistant package testing laboratory in the world. They have had representation from pharmaceutical, clinical, generic, and household product industries.
