Pharma batch coding is perhaps the most subtle, yet most vital, part of the overall packaging design process. This is an area that is governed by the very strictest of regulations, with harsh penalties for companies who do not comply.
Even the slightest of errors in pharma batch coding can have potentially life threatening consequences for patients. If careless errors get through the system companies can expect to pay for costly product recalls. At worst, they may suffer from devastating damages to their reputation and integrity.
The EU Falsified Medicines Directive requires that every pharmaceutical box, carton and packet features a 2D barcode, batch and expiry details, and a unique 15 digital serial number. The purpose of pharma batch coding is to protect doctors, patients and consumers through eliminating the risks of counterfeiting.
Counterfeit medicine is often ineffective and potentially lethal. All companies in this sector have a responsibility for protecting their patients and customers.
