Originally the FDA's responsibility, enforcing the PPPA regulations became a task for the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in 1973. Since then, the CPSC has set the requirements for child-resistant packaging, with the FDA handling labeling suggestions for products that may be harmful. Child-resistant packaging requirements are one of the primary solutions, second only to proper storage, to accidental ingestion of harmful substances by young children.
