Pharmaceutical production is one of the most regulated industries in the United States. Since its formation in 1906, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has continuously created and enforced laws regarding drug manufacturing, distribution, and product packaging. Regardless of whether pharmaceuticals are available over-the-counter (OTC) or only through prescription, the FDA has established regulations that dictate what information must be included on the product’s label. Failure to include the required information can lead to expensive recalls and reputation-damaging actions taken by the FDA.
To help companies avoid these consequences, InkJet, Inc. offers the hardware and ink necessary to label packages following FDA regulations. Here are the strengths and benefits of utilizing inkjet printing for pharmaceutical applications.
