    ASTM D3475

    Significance and Use

    3.1 This classification scheme defines the type of motions, skills, or tools required for a particular type of child-resistant package and provides examples of current packaging within that type.

    3.2 Reference to a particular package in this classification is not intended in any manner to denote endorsement or approval of the package by ASTM.

    3.3 Packages have been included as examples based on manufacturers' claims of child-resistance. Child-resistant package functionality for any specific product type must be determined by the packager/manufacturer following the guidelines of the PPPA of 1970 and the most current version of the CFR Title 16 Part 1700 and Title 40 Part 157.2 The listing of a package in this classification is not an indication of whether or not it has been successfully tested in accordance with the aforementioned guidelines.

    3.4 Additions or deletions to the examples should be reported to Committee D10 on Packaging, for incorporation into this classification during the next revision.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This classification covers various types of child-resistant packages.

    1.2 The examples for each type of child-resistant packaging are not intended to be all-inclusive, but are included only as an aid in the understanding and comprehension of each type of classification.

    1.3 Listings are not to be considered endorsements or approval of the package by ASTM.
