Experts share advice on managing source data, local language labeling & country specific requirements

Global life sciences and medical device labeling is a complex subject and an integral part of the supply chain. The landscape is varied in terms of the systems and processes employed in designing, populating and printing labels (including booklets, inserts and IFUs). To control labeling on a global scale a number of key functions need to be managed including:

• Complexities around local language labeling
• Managing source data for labels, booklets, inserts and IFUs
• Customizing labels for country specific requirements

Medical materials are shipped across many countries and many continents. For the sake of patient safety, the ability to control these materials’ labels at a global level is paramount. Labels must therefore be safely and accurately customized not only so that they are in the appropriate local languages, but also ensure country specific nuances of including country specific designs and regulatory requirements are understood sufficiently to communicate coherently with users.

In this information-packed session, we explore what the industry can do to improve data security, adhere to regulations and mitigate the risks involved in local language labeling and country specific design.
