Product Description

View on Packaging

In May 2010, the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry may be faced with a daunting change. The United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) — an official public standards-setting authority for all medications and other healthcare products manufactured or sold in the United States — has revised General Chapter 1 Injections,  Labeling on Ferrules and Cap Overseals, to limit printing and other types of messaging on drug packaging.
The changes included in this revision would limit printing to only cautionary statements on the top surface of the ferrule or cap overseal of an injectable drug product. The USP defines a cautionary statement as “one intended to prevent an imminent life-threatening situation if the injectable drug is used inappropriately.”
