Compact labelling station for protection against tampering of pharmaceutical packaging
The EU Directive 2011/62/EU promulgated in 2011 introduced legal framework requirements for a pan-European safety system for prevention of counterfeit medicines. A central component, which is also addressed in the pharmaceutical law, is a clear and secure marking system for database-backed traceability and tamper-proof sealing of all packaging.
VISIOPHARMA can offer a compact, efficient and reliable solution to this requirement. Self adhesive label seals are applied on both sides of the flap openings of pharmaceutical packing. Perforation on the labels will expose manipulation by destruction of the labels. Depending on the packaging plant, labels are either dispensed after weighing or after an inkjet printer has printed a sequential datamatrix code onto each package. The package will be rejected if the marking is wrong or if a seal is applied incorrectly. Only verified products will leave the plant.
