Labeling for tamper-evident, anti-counterfeiting and patient safety

UPM Raflatac – Pharmaceutical labels for security and patient safetyWe have developed a comprehensive range of pharmaceutical label products that support compliance with the Falsified Medicines Directive (2011/62/EU) for packaging of prescription drugs and high-risk over-the-counter medicines. Compliance is achieved by incorporating tamper-evident features as described in the new European Standard EN 16679, “Tamper verification features for medicinal product packaging”.

This directive requires that pharmaceutical labels help prevent counterfeiting and tampering, and also support traceability.

These adhesives work together with our tamper-evident pharmaceutical label faces, which tear, split (the laminated layers separate), or flake when interfered with.​

The following label faces all pair with RP62 EU adhesive to support legislative requirements for individually authenticated, tamper-evident packs, protecting the supply chain from counterfeits.

Pharmaclear PP Seal face material combines a destructible, non-reusable face – which noticeably stretches on attempted removal – with visible cardboard tearing for an excellent tamper-evident label. 

Pharmaclear PP Tear TC creates a visible cardboard tear on tampered pharmaceutical packs. The transparent label face also prevents label transfer onto counterfeit products by revealing the surface torn from tampered packs. 

Pharmatight label faces are relatively fragile and suffer irreversible damage or break when tampered with. Attempted removal of a Pharmatight label will also cause surface damage to cardboard pharmaceutical packs.

The ultra-destructible Acrylate Gloss Clear UD label film is irreversibly torn or broken when sealing labels are tampered with. The label can’t be re-used, further improving product safety. When combined with our RP62 EU adhesive, this UD material meets the requirements of even the most challenging pharmaceutical packaging substrates and includes the pharmaceutical product change management guarantee.
