U.S. Child Resistant Cannabis Bags CR Certified - US 16 CFR 1700.20

The US standards for child-safe packaging testing include ASTM D3475-18 and US 16 CFR 1700.20.

CPSC is an important consumer rights protection agency in the United States. It is the abbreviation of Consumer Product Safety Committee, that is, Consumer Product Safety Association. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) was established in 1972. Its responsibility is to protect the interests of consumers and maintain personal and family safety by reducing the risk of injury and death from consumer products. The main functions of CPSC are: to formulate self-discipline standards for producers, and to formulate mandatory standards or prohibitions for those consumer products that have no standards to follow. Perform inspections of potentially hazardous products and provide feedback to consumers through various channels including the media, state, local government, individual groups and organizations.

There are strict requirements for the United States, Canada, the European Union, Turkey and other countries. The standards required by each place are different.
