As experts in pharmaceutical labeling, we understand the factors that influence label selection for pharmaceutical products. From low migration label materials with low leachability characteristics to specialized materials that can withstand demanding conditions, our label material specification guide summarizes the key things you should consider when to succeed in pharmaceutical and healthcare labeling.
The right label material for your pharmaceutical product
Choosing the right label
Vial, bottle, infusion bag or syringe? Selecting the right label material for the container is essential to safeguarding the integrity of the product. From small volume size containers such as vials and ampules to solutions that stick reliably to cylindrical containers, discover why it’s important to consider the size and shape of the container when selecting a label.
Pharmaceutical label safety
Choosing a label that is made from pharmaceutical grade materials is crucial to ensuring that pharmaceutical products are safe. At UPM Raflatac, we assure the safety of our labels by using materials that have been rigorously pre-tested, meet applicable regulatory requirements for their intended use and offer a secured long-term supply.
Label change control
Unforeseen changes in raw materials or the packaging of pharmaceutical products can pose a risk to pharmaceutical product safety. We understand that specification and validation processes take a long time and consume significant resources, which is why we offer a robust change management process in addition to the long-term availability of unchanged materials.
Our pharmaceutical packaging experts are constantly working to uncover and implement the best practices in healthcare labeling. Our labeling experts can help you by providing valuable insights about processes and guidelines derived from pharmaceutical packaging material associations and working groups. We also offer a documentation service to support product regulatory validation.
Pharmaceutical product security
How can labels increase product security and enhance consumer safety? Find out how tamper evident labels, anti-counterfeit labels and presence verification solutions are helping to protect consumers, ensure supply-chain security and support compliance for the packaging of prescription drugs and high-risk over-the-counter medicines.
Product packaging is constantly evolving as packaging material regulations advance to improve safety. Staying on top of the latest changes is integral to achieving product compliance. Regulatory compliance ensures that packaging materials:
- Protect the drug
- Do not change the product or packaging materials
- Do not introduce toxic compounds to the drug
- Are compatible with the drug
- Guarantee effective performance and functionality
- Guarantee safe drug delivery
