One of the major concerns of drug packaging is how to reduce accidents caused by children's exposure to or misuse of drugs. Statistics show that 30% of child deaths in many countries are due to accidental drug use.

Recently, the State Food and Drug Administration revised the management method of drug packaging materials and improved the safety standard of drug packaging materials.

Therefore, whether the requirements of policies and regulations or the needs of market competition, drug packaging material selection, packaging design should be fully considered safety issues.
In the future, with the in-depth implementation of GMP in China, the national requirements for pharmaceutical packaging industry are increasingly strict, drug packaging will gradually achieve standardization, meticulous, serialized, new materials, new technology, new process of continuous progress, will make drug packaging more convenient, safe, more in line with the requirements of environmental protection.
