GLOSSARY: Pharma Packaging

Pharma packaging has many critical roles. It helps guarantee the quality and preservation of a drug, as any leaks can spoil the product. Pharma packaging systems equipment must be fully validated and comply with the latest cGMP requirements.

Packaging and labeling has a direct influence on how a medicine is administered. With patient safety risks standing tall, packaging mistakes are not tolerated by the globe’s regulators.
