Dedication to child-resistant, senior friendly package research
is a number one priority at Child Related Research.

Over the past 50 years, Child Related Research has become a global leading authority in evaluation and protocol testing of child-resistant closures and packages. We work closely with CPSC, EPA and other Governmental agencies to keep you updated on current and critical governmental information.

In June of 2007, Pat McCullen, Vice President of the International Accreditation Service (IAS), published an article titled “Saving the Lives of Children, One Child at a Time” which praised CRR for company-wide competency and accuracy in product testing procedures and implementation. Mr. McCullen states, “Child Related Research, Inc. provides testing for some of the largest pharmaceutical and household chemical companies in the United States. Through its efforts and the efforts of IAS, we are truly people helping people build a safer world.”

Today, Child Related Research remains committed to the research of child-resistant packaging. We perform testing from small start-ups to large businesses including many of the Fortune 500’s top pharmaceutical and household chemical industries in the world. Our focus on client service, speed to market, and experience means we have built long lasting relationships with our clients.


Our Founder, Robert E. Buie, saw the need for an independent testing consulting firm after the passage of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act in 1970. He partnered with the expertise of Dr. Allen K. Done, a leading pediatrician, toxicologist, pharmacologist and founder and director of the first Poison Control Center. Together, they worked to develop our successful testing methods.

Child Related Research is as focused and involved in the evaluation and testing of child-resistant packaging as we were in 1970. Dedication to package research remains our number one priority.
