Tamper-evident packaging guideline
Tamper-evident packaging of therapeutic goods that may be vulnerable to tampering (either deliberate or accidental) is important in ensuring consumer safety and the integrity of the goods. Tamper-evident packaging increases the likelihood that consumers will recognise products that have been tampered with.
The Guideline for the Tamper-Evident Packaging of Medicines, Complementary Healthcare Products and Medical Devices has been superseded by Code of practice for the tamper-evident packaging (TEP) of therapeutic goods (Edition 1, June 2003).
