Lost in Translation




From a regulatory perspective, working primarily with chemical industrial and retail products, there are several translation challenges businesses face when looking to market their products. During the process of creating a product label, questions concerning label translations will arise: what language is required? Are there exemptions for this product? Will the necessary information fit on the label? How can the quality of the translation be ensured?

The answers to these questions depend on the country-specific regulations, the required label content, and the methods of obtaining a translation. It is important to remember that there are many entities that rely on the content of a product label. These include regulatory enforcement agencies (customs), international shipping companies, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and the end user (retail or workplace). Each organisation has different responsibilities regarding the product labelling. Manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors are typically responsible for the generation of compliant labels. The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals can apply to retail and the workplace, which could also include pharmaceutical inputs, i.e., excipients.

The Flexible Factory Concept: A flexible bioprocessing platform to meet the changing needs of biomanufacturing

GE Healthcare Life Sciences

For the past several years, the biopharma industry has been buffeted by dynamic market conditions that are rapidly reshaping manufacturing requirements. These factors include: • The rise of small-market pharmaceuticals that do not require the production scale of the previous “blockbuster” drug model • Increased titers and process productivity that generate more bulk-product within a much smaller manufacturing footprint • The emergence of biosimilars and continued evolution of healthcare reform, which will increasingly pressure drug pricing and require greater cost discipline • Greater competition and shorter patent protection timelines, which will further ratchet up time-to-market pressures • Tighter capital markets that will create heightened scrutiny for all new investment projects
