Mislabelling can lead to unnecessary costs!
Medical device, Diagnostics and Pharmaceuticals barcode labels need to be accurately preserved for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 labelling compliance to capture and record activity of any electronic systems used to identify and track their products. Non-compliance to FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and similar regulations can result in unnecessary costs:
- Fines from regulatory agencies
- Relabelling costs
- Recalling products
- Legal fees
- Pause manufacturing and testing
- Damage to brand reputation customer loyalty and trust
A 2018 Recall Index study found that 14.3% of pharmaceutical recalls were attributed to mislabelling. In the medical device industry, mislabelling was the second highest cause of product recalls behind software problems. And in the food and beverage industry, undeclared allergens lead to the most food recalls, which may be a function of not meeting food labelling requirements
Considering this diverse set of medical device regulations, companies need to find a labelling solution that is fully scalable and able to meet the ever-evolving demands of the regulatory industry, including medical device labels.
