    Standard Test Method for Reverse-Ratchet Torque of Type IA Child-Resistant Closures (Withdrawn 2016)

    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covered the measurement of the torque developed when Type IA child-resistant closures are rotated in the counter-clockwise direction. Type IA closures are reclosable continuous threaded closures that use a random push down while turning; no orientation of the push down force is necessary.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D10 on Packaging, this test method was withdrawn in January 2016 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the torque developed when Type IA child-resistant closures are rotated in the counter-clockwise direction. Type IA closures are reclosable continuous threaded closures that use a random push down while turning; no orientation of the push down force is necessary.

    This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
