Spink, J. (2012). Tamper-evident packaging in brand protection.
Tamper-evident (TE) and tamper-resistant (TR) packaging provide an opportunity for incremental actions which can provide a means to combat counterfeit products, product diversion, shoplifting, cargo theft, return and warranty fraud, and unauthorized refills. This backgrounder provides information on TE and TR packaging including their regulatory definitions, the current and likely future extent of their use, and their applications for brand protection.
