The provisions of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act of 1970 and the related protocol testing procedures provided the packaging industry with a need for industry-wide physical standards to provide a means for assuring that production of individual special packaging components continues to comply with the requirements of these regulations.

Standards for aerosol child-resistant closures are also being developed.
