Labelling: Clarity and Compliance

The legislation surrounding the clear and accurate labelling of pharmaceuticals, and the inclusion, where appropriate, of accompanying instruction leaflets, is becoming increasingly stringent. As a consequence, in addition to having to include mandatory information on medicinal products, pharmaceutical manufacturers and packaging companies are now required to ensure that this information is legible, easy to understand, and indelible. In order to achieve this using conventional printing technology, considerable time, money and resources can be required, leading these companies to look for a simpler and more cost-effective alternative.

Thankfully, a new generation of easy to operate and cost-effective printing equipment has been developed in response to these requirements, enabling the standards to be met with minimal expenditure and stress. Furthermore, these latest printers provide a sustainable solution, able to cater for evolving regulations and standards in order that they can continue to meet user requirements in the long term.

STRINGENT REGULATIONS

OEMs and packaging companies must now comply with the European Parliament Directive 2001/83/EC, which provides a number of guidelines concerning labelling pharmaceuticals and providing supporting documentation...

Future-proofing serialization solutions: the importance of strong level 3 capabilities

Adents

The complexities surrounding product serialization for pharmaceutical and medical device companies are immense. While current serialization requirements are limited to marking the unit of sale with a unique data carrier, by 2023 the process will require a product to be traceable through the entirety of its journey - from the individual package through the carton/pallet to its final point of distribution. In the United States, the Healthcare Distribution Management Association (HDMA) is suggesting that pharmaceutical companies begin to support this level of serialization, called aggregation, now. Around the world – in Europe and Asia in particular – disparate track and trace practices are incrementally moving toward a global standard that will, undoubtedly, be more stringent than today’s differing benchmarks. How can companies manage this transformation with the greatest degree of success while also minimizing business disruption? The key to creating an optimal implementation strategy is to select a serialization solution that has strong capabilities at all levels of technology. It’s also important to choose a solution that enables multi-phase implementation
