ISO 8317:2015 specifies performance requirements and test methods for reclosable packages designated as resistant to opening by children.
Acceptance criteria are given for the packages when tested by specified methods. These methods not only provide a measure of the effectiveness of the packaging in restricting access by children, but also cover the accessibility to the contents by adults.
ISO 8317:2015 is applicable to reclosable packages for any product intended to be exposed or removed from the packaging in normal use.
ISO 8317:2015 is intended for type approval only and is not intended for quality assurance purposes.
