Printing on Pharmaceutical packaging 

Traceability made easy. 

Quickly and accurately code & mark your products at all stages.

As a professional in the field of pharmaceutical packaging, you understand the importance of quality printing. That’s where Print on Pharmaceutical Packaging comes in – providing you with expert advice and solutions for printing on blister packaging.


Pharmaceutical and medical device manufactures are legally required to follow certain product coding and marking regulations. Governing bodies such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) develop and administer these mandates.


Prevent Recalls Arising from Packaging & Labelling

When products escape the labeling and packaging component of a manufacturer’s production system, recalls happen! In fact, in a recent FDA presentation, it was found that the causes for some recall events (and their percentage of total recalls) identified as follows:

  • Incorrect/missing production lot number – 6%
  • Label mix-up – 5%
  • Mis-carton/mis-packaging – 5%


A New & Superior Way of Coding and Marking Drug Products

Pharmaceutical track & trace systems play an important role in diminishing the occurrence of these non-conformances. Printing Verification and Control Devices can be used:

  • to assure imprinting conforms to the batch record
  • for drug product, case and carton labels

A robust packaging and labeling system:

  • Prevents labeling mix-ups
  • Provides traceability information for the batch
  • Improves visibility of key information
  • Ensures legibility of drug name or strength on blister packaging
  • Offers long lasting ink
  • Can be used to bring attention to important product information on shipping cartons.

With RN Mark printers, you can quickly and accurately code your products at all levels. From marking the product itself all the way to final packaging.


FDA Labeling Requirements for Unique Device Identification

The FDA requires devices intended to be reprocessed or to be used more than once by multiple patients to be marked with a permanent Unique Device Identifier (UDI). This is known as UDI direct marking. The most reliable way to ensure a UDI lasts for the life of a multi-use device is by marking the device itself with a permanent mark, rather than a temporary package or label which can be discarded, torn, obscured, wiped off, or easily degraded.
