Tamper evident seals are an effective and inexpensive way of assuring that a product is what it claims to be. They are generally used in the food and beverage industry but are not limited to these sectors. A simple seal is all that is needed to ensure that a product is not altered, whether accidentally or deliberately. These are also used in various industries such as automotive, chemical and electronics to name just a few. They are relatively inexpensive compared to other forms of packaging and are an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic bags and polythene bags.

If a business is considering using these seals, there are a number of considerations to keep in mind. It is important to bear in mind the level of tamper resistance that each product requires and to choose seals which are compatible with that particular product. It is also important to bear in mind the possible effects which can occur if tamper evident seals are tampered with and to design them in such a way as to be tamper proof without being excessively heavy or unwieldy.
Some seals have a small tab in their centre, which has two flaps, one inside the seal itself and one on the outside of the tab. This is what allows the seal to be opened and this is what potential tamper evidence could be used against a business. In addition to the seal being tamper proof, it should be designed such that it cannot be removed easily tampered with.
