1           Name of Order

          This Order is Therapeutic Goods Order No. 80 Child-Resistant Packaging Requirements for Medicines.

2           Commencement

          This Order commences on the day after the day it is registered on the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments.

3           Transition

          (a)     Up to and including 31 August 2010, each medicine to which this Order applies must comply with either this Order or Therapeutic Goods Order No. 65 Child-Resistant Packaging for Therapeutic Goods.

          (b)     On and from 1 September 2010, each medicine to which this Order applies must comply with this Order.

4           Introduction

          (1)     The objective of this Order is to set particular requirements for the packaging of medicines that may present a significant risk of toxicity to children if accidentally ingested.  These requirements relate to child‑resistant packaging — that is, packaging that is designed to be resistant to opening by young children.

          (2)     Child‑resistant packaging is not child‑proof.  While it has an important role in reducing the incidence and public health burden of accidental poisoning in children and the associated morbidity and mortality, it provides only one safeguard in that it delays the time taken by a child to open a package and access multiple units, thereby increasing the probability of adult intervention before the contents are fully accessible and can be ingested.

          (3)     Compliance of packaging with the national or international Standards for child‑resistance referred to in this Order only establishes a packaging system as child‑resistant, not child‑proof.

          (4)     The criteria used by the committee advising on requirements for child‑resistant packaging are:

                    (a)     the toxicity of the substance contained in the medicine, and risk of harm if it is accidentally ingested by a young child; and

                    (b)     the extent and patterns of availability in the community of medicines containing the substance; and

                    (c)     the number and type of incidents reported to Poisons Information Centres and other relevant organisations involving accidental ingestion of medicines containing the substance; and

                   (d)     the consequences of these incidents (hospital admission or other treatment, serious injury, or death), including the difficulty or complexity of treatment; and

                    (e)     any special needs of patients who regularly need access to medicines containing the substances, such as older persons or people with a disability; and

                    (f)     the technical feasibility and practicality of child‑resistant packaging for medicines containing the substance, taking into account the usual dosage form and presentation; and

                   (g)     other such matters as the committee thinks fit.

          (5)     A substance will, in general, be considered to be sufficiently toxic to warrant child‑resistant packaging if the amount contained in a maximum prescription quantity (for example under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme) or the largest retail pack quantity, is likely to produce significant harm (i.e. a requirement for hospital treatment, or death) in a child of 11 kg (i.e. a typical weight of an 18 month old child, representative of the age group in which accidental poisoning is most common).

          (6)     While the criteria set out in subsection 4(4) and the guideline set out in subsection 4(5) relate to toxicity only from ingestion, if a medicine presents a hazard in terms of potential to cause serious harm to young children through inadvertent contact with the eyes, the skin or mucous membranes, then these medicines will also be considered for child‑resistant packaging.

          (7)     None of the criteria set out in subsection 4(4) are intended to be considered in isolation and recommendations for child‑resistant packaging are made on balance.  Consideration of all of the criteria permits the objective assessment of the risk/benefit balance although emphasis will be given to public health and safety.

          (8)     The criteria do recognise that child-resistant packaging can present difficulties for older persons and those with a disability. This also is recognised in each of the Standards for child‑resistance referred to in this Order, which include protocols for testing not only with young children but also with adults who are between 50 and 70 years of age.

          (9)     The forms of packaging permitted by this Order may be either reclosable or non‑reclosable.  Requirements for reclosable child‑resistant packages are performance‑based and rely on compliance with at least one of a range of specified national or international Standards, together with a small number of other requirements.

          (10)   At this time, requirements of this Order for non‑reclosable packages such as blister or foil strips do not involve performance testing, but instead are based on design and specified materials of construction.  These requirements reflect the general requirements of Australian Standard AS 1928‑2001 Child‑resistant packages.

          (11)   While non-reclosable packaging has been accepted to date as providing a child‑barrier, it is intended that a best practice guideline on this form of packaging will be developed in order to help sponsors improve the robustness and effectiveness of blister or foil strip packaging in order to further reduce the potential for accidental childhood poisoning from medicines packaged in this way.

5           Interpretation

          (1)     In this Order:

                   Act means the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989, as amended from time to time;

   blister means a package in which:

                  (a)      one or more dosage units are enclosed in pockets between a pre‑formed tray with individual pockets and a lidding material which may be flat or shaped; and

                  (b)      the dosage units can only be extracted from one pocket at a time; and

                  (c)      the material of the tray is usually different from that of the lid; and

                  (d)      the material of the tray or lid must be cut, torn or peeled open in order to access the contents of individual pockets.

bulk medicine pack means a pack intended to be broken down and repackaged by a pharmacist to allow individual courses of treatment to be dispensed to a patient.

child‑resistant packaging means packaging that is designed or constructed to be difficult for young children to open, or gain access to the contents, within a reasonable time but is not unduly difficult for adults to use properly.

Note Child-resistant packaging does not mean packaging that is impossible for young children to open, or obtain the contents of, within a reasonable time. Child-resistant is not synonymous with child-proof.
