F-Value Assessments

We conduct F-value assessments to determine unit packaging for pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, etc. 

Pursuant to the POISON PREVENTION PACKAGING ACT OF 1970, as enforced through the CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION, we review toxicology and safety data in addition to clinical data for your product to determine the “F-Value”, or the maximum number of units of the product to comply with Child-Resistant Testing Requirements for unit dose packaging.
The F-Value refers to the number of individual units to which access is considered a test failure is commonly, and unofficially, referred to as “F”. This value takes into consideration the individual units of a product that can be removed from a package.

For example: If the toxicity of a substance requires access to 2 units to be considered a test failure, the substance is said to require an F=2 package.
