Minimize the Risk of Recalls -- The Cost of Poor Pharmaceutical Packaging Management, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - January 29, 2016) - The presentation will provide insight on how to reduce recalls from pharmaceutical packaging errors using specific methods. The live broadcast takes place on Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 11am EST (4pm GMT).

The number of pharmaceutical product recalls is growing. Some estimates show that over 50% of recalls are related to pharmaceutical packaging artwork and labeling, with over 60% of those caused by human error. When these errors in pharmaceutical packaging result in recalls, the consequences are severe and include:

  • Risks to patient safety
  • FDA (and other regulatory agency) compliance issues
  • Cost/logistic problems through the supply chains
  • Fines
  • Reputation damages (brand and/or company)

Maintaining Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for pharmaceutical packaging and labeling compliance is therefore critically important, and must follow regulations set out by the FDA governing electronic systems, known as 21 CFR Part 11, and by the European Commission Annex 11 guidelines.

To tackle these issues, many companies have used a fail-safe approach by integrating:

  1. Pharmaceutical packaging and labeling management software dedicated to GMP labeling and packaging artwork change management
  2. Digital packaging quality control tools designed to stop pharmaceutical packaging and labeling errors by accurately inspecting barcodes, braille, artwork text and spelling

Join presenters Mike Baird, Global Business Development of Pharma & Life Sciences at Esko, and Arpad Lehoczki, Senior Account Executive at Global Vision for an informative session that will include examples, implementation, plus features and benefits of an integrated approach.
