Child-resistant packaging (CRP) is a type of packaging designed to prevent children from opening or accessing potentially harmful products such as medicines, pesticides, or household chemicals. CRP must meet certain performance requirements and test methods regulated by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) under the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA).
Some examples of CRP are safety caps, blister packs, or unit dose packaging. CRP must also be easy for adults to use properly, especially for seniors who may have difficulty with some types of packaging. CRP is required for certain over-the-counter (OTC) products such as acetaminophen, aspirin, diphenhydramine, or ibuprofen. For a complete list of substances that require CRP, see 16 CFR §1700.14.
