Child-resistant packaging -- Requirements and testing procedures for reclosable packages

ISO 8317:2003 specifies the requirements and test methods for reclosable packages designated as resistant to opening by children.

Acceptance criteria are given for the package when tested by specified methods. These methods not only provide a measure of the effectiveness of the package in restricting access by children, but also cover the accessibility to the contents by adults.

Reclosable packages for any product intended to be exposed or removed from the packaging in normal use are covered by the procedures.

ISO 8317:2003 is intended for type approval only and is not intended for quality assurance purposes.
