The European Parliament’s directive 2011/62/EU (FMD – Falsified Medicines Directive) stipulates that each individual product must have both a serial number and a feature that provides tamper evidence.
advast suisse offers security labels that comply with the directive as well as innovative solutions for the pharmaceutical and drugs sectors that meet FMD security requirements in every respect and guarantee patient safety.
Tamper-proof protection and tamper evidence
Security labels are an economical and easy-to-implement solution that allows drugs manufacturers to comply with the tamper-proof security required by the anti-counterfeiting directive without having to change existing packaging or dispose of packaging already in stock.
Our security labels have an adhesive that has been specially formulated for drugs labels, leaving behind irreversible and visible changes to the packaging or security label if an attempt is made to open the packaging. Opening or tampering with the packaging is immediately obvious.
