Mind Your Language! Requirements for Local Language Labeling in Clinical Trials

Global clinical trials labeling can be a complex subject and is an integral part of clinical trials supplies management. The landscape is varied in terms of the systems and processes employed in designing, populating and printing labels - including booklets and instructions for use (IFUs).

A Clear Vision: Developing the right strategy to assure compliant labeling inspection

The continual tightening of regulation around the packaging and labeling of medical devices has so far failed to stimulate a transformation of labeling infrastructure and approach among global device manufacturers.

How the GUDID was it for you?

An examination of UDI implementation and lessons for manufacturers of Class II device

Validation; Business Gain Without the Pain

How leveraging supplier validation capabilities can help transform the validation cycle and drive progress, productivity and profitability.

Delaying Tactics - How a Postponement Strategy can transform documentation processes and bring supply chain agility

Maintaining an efficient supply chain is widely acknowledged as a key strategic imperative for businesses across the global life science sectors.

Aligning for Growth: The Evolution of Medical Device Labeling

Over the past 20 years, developing labeling solutions for the highly regulated devices sector has been a steady, evolutionary process, but not everyone has completed the journey. The introduction of a common UDI mandate is a once in a lifetime game-changer that gives medical device companies no choice but to adapt to this standard.

Time to Act - Has Judgment Day Arrived for Counterfeit Drugs?

An Introduction to The Challenges Presented By Product Codification & Serialization In The Pharmaceutical Sector It is well recognized that the counterfeiting of pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices is a real and constant threat to patient safety. It is a global issue that affects all of us. It doesn’t recognize borders or trade agreements and its supply chain is fast to react to new opportunities and, in particular, weaknesses in the legitimate production and supply of medicines and devices. Read our white paper, “Time to Act – Has Judgment Day Arrived for Counterfeit Drugs?” to learn about the differences in approach between the US Electronic Pedigree (ePedigree) based approach and the European style mass serialization approach.

Ensuring FDA Compliance: The Essential Guide to FDA 21 CFR Part 11

FDA 21 CFR Part 11 allows Medical Device and Life Science organizations to use electronic records and signatures in place of paper. This helps organizations reduce the cost of managing and documenting their entire labeling lifecycle, from routing and approval workflow, version control and comparison, to audit trails and reports.

Can Vision Systems Safeguard Label Integrity?

In a recent vision systems survey of PRISYM ID customers, 67% of respondents indicated that the most frequent cause of errors during the label printing process was due to human error – a statistic that just can’t be ignored. Due to the high incidence of errors, vision systems have recently become an important element of the label inspection process delivering speed, consistency and accuracy.

Implementing Unique Device Identification without Derailing Production

Due to increasing interest in public safety and protection of public health, the FDA has adopted a rule for Unique Device Identification (UDI). This rule was designed to enhance safety by identifying labeling errors involving medical devices and providing rapid resolution of device problems.
