Owens-Illinois offers solutions in response to CPSC regulations

In response to new standards passed by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Owens-Illinois is forging ahead in the development of new child-resistant packaging in addition to those product lines already offered.

The CPSC regulations passed in October 2001 require child-resistant packaging for several common household products and cosmetics containing hydrocarbons, including such products as sunscreen, baby oil, and gas additives.The CPSC also ruled that the poison prevention packaging must be in use by October 16, 2002.

"First and foremost, it is important to keep our children safe. Owens-Illinois is proud to offer a variety of packaging solutions available to all industries including health care, personal care, household, and automotive that combine technology, functionality, and convenience while maintaining the CPSC standards," says Ken Corbett, Industry Manager at O-I.

Owens-Illinois currently offers 12 different product offerings in a variety of sizes that already meet the CPSC standards including CLIC-LOC(R), ARGUS-LOC(R), Squeeze & Turn, 1-CLIC(R), trigger sprayers, and drain back systems (DBS), just to name a few. And what's more, O-I is currently working to develop as many as 15 new child-resistant closure solutions capturing cutting-edge technology to accommodate a large variety of containers and products.
