Igb has developed and industrialized an innovative Child Resistant folding box that looks like a regular folding box and has a locking system.

Children under five are not able to do that. The Igb Child Resistant Folding Box is made of a tear-resistant cardboard that children cannot rip open and relocks automatically when closed.

All the packaging parts are connected, making the whole box a primary packaging. This makes it suitable to be qualified as child-resistant packaging according to the U.S. regulations. The Child Resistant box has been designed to be mass packaged on standard pharmaceutical packaging lines and does not does not require investments in machinery. The Tamper Eviden folding box from Igb is the easiest solution to comply with Directive 2011/62/EU and FDA requirements defining and requiring tamper evidence for pharmaceutical products. The Igb Tamper Evident folding box needs no glue or labels, removing two sources of production line delays.
