Pill protect Company Profile

18:23 EDT 17th June 2018 | BioPortfolio

Around 2000 children are being admitted to UK hospitals every year as a result of taking tablets not designed for their consumption. Pill protect was established in 2003 to help prevent accidental poisoning.
At this time, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) introduced the Medicines (Child Safety) Regulations 2003 number 2317 together with a testing standard of BS 8404. These regulations require drugs containing aspirin, paracetamol and more than 24mg of elemental iron, to be packaged in blister-packs which are child resistant and senior friendly. Whilst these regulations came into force in October 2003, existing drug packaging licenses were given a two year transitional period. This transitional period therefore expired on 1 October 2005, and now compliance with this legislation is essential. Since its inception, BS 8404 has been augmented by EN 14375, a similar European Standard, which is now adopted in the UK.In order to help Pill protect expand its market we are pleased to announce that we have recently become a wholly owned subsidiary of Avid Plc, a company listed on the London Stock Exchange. This additional investment has enabled us to further develop and test our products, as well as look for new worldwide markets.
