Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1798166A1] The invention relates to a temporary closure for medical waste containers and the like, consisting of a plate (3) that can be internally coupled to the mouth of the body (1) of the container in a considerably recessed position, having a perfect perimetral fit preventing gases from being released, said plate (3) having a wide window (5) that can in turn be blocked by means of a cover (6) which is tightly coupled to said window and which is hinged at one of its edges to the plate (3). The closure conditions are thus maintained substantially leak-tight during the entire process in which the container (1) is being filled, the latter not having its conventional permanent and tamper-proof cover, and once said filling is complete, the permanent cover is coupled to the mouth of the body (1), without removing the plate (3) or its cover (6), and the container can be permanently dosed for disposal thereof without the possibility of accessing the inside.
