Do you meet the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) Certified Child Resistant Packaging requirements?
Yes! According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, child-resistant packages “must be designed or constructed to be significantly difficult for children under five years of age to open within a reasonable time, and not difficult for normal adults to use properly.” Our press-to-close zippers paired with our high-grade digitally printed stand up pouches or lay flat pouches, ensure your products are safely secured, while still standing out on the shelf.
