Interpack in Düsseldorf is the world’s largest packaging trade fair. Faubel will also be in attendance; the international, family-owned company will be welcoming visitors at booth C 15 in hall 7a from May 8.
This year, Faubel is particularly focusing on childproof pharmaceutical packaging. "There are 200,000 cases of accidental poisoning involving young children every year in Germany, with around 60 percent caused by medication. These figures are alarming, which is why we have been working for several years to produce childproof labeling solutions," explains Reinhard Kuge, CEO at Faubel.
Faubel has thus developed the CRSF label, and more. This multi-layer label offers an effective way of making standard blister packs childproof during downstream processing, yet still guarantees packaging that is senior-friendly. The CRSF label is certified to DIN EN 134375 and US 16 CFR § 1700.20 (F1) standards, and can be processed manually or by machine.
On May 12, visitors to the Faubel booth can find out about childproof pharmaceutical packaging, its requirements and certification from Dr. Rolf Abelmann, CEO of Institut VerpackungsMarktforschung (ivm) in Braunschweig.
The ivm has been providing services as a packaging and market research institute since 1975, by investigating how consumers interact with packaging. Testing and certifying childproof packaging is a particular specialty. The ivm is one of the few internationally accredited institutes recognised by the CPSC (consumer product safety commission) and the FDA (food and drug administration) in the USA.
