Tamper Evident – A solution for the pharmaceutical sector

The EU Directive 2011/62/EU promulgated in 2011 introduced legal framework requirements for a pan-European safety system for prevention of counterfeit medicines. A central component, which is also addressed in the pharmaceutical law, is a clear and secure marking system for database-backed traceability and tamper-proof sealing of all packaging.

Weber Marking Systems can offer a compact, efficent and reliable solution to this requirement. A compact labelling unit is integrated into existing data matrix stations or weighing systems. Self-adhesive label seals are applied on both sides of the flap openings of pharmaceutical packing. Perforation on the labels will expose manipulation by destruction of the labels. Depending on the packaging plant, labels are either dispensed after weighing or after an inkjet printer – e.g. the Markoprint series – has printed a sequential datamatrix code onto each package.
