Preparing for Change




The pharmaceutical packaging industry has evolved significantly in recent years as new technologies and pioneering solutions have been developed to meet changing market requirements. Additionally, companies continue to explore ways to drive efficiencies across the supply chain, streamline their operations, and reduce time to market.

These new regulations that now exist in multiple markets aim to combat this issue by making drug products verifiable as they pass through the supply chain, ensuring greater safety for patients.

In February 2019, regulators implemented the EU Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD). The regulation introduced new requirements for manufacturers whereby they are now expected to ensure products are affixed with a unique serial number and barcode.
