Pharmaceutical Labels

Pharmaceuticals is one of the biggest industries globally and is responsible for researching and developing controlled medicines and drugs to market.

Examples of the types of pharmaceutical products are liquids, medicines, tablets, creams, pastes, powders, surgical and clinical supplies and accessories such as dressings, syringes etc.  These all have their own packaging type (e.g. boxes, tubs, tubes, bottles, vials, bags, sachets), and they all require their own label types.

Many pharmaceutical companies follow PS 9000 accredited guidelines for their product labelling.  We work to deliver high-quality manufactured labels according to our customers’ specifications to ensure that their clinical processes are never compromised.    CS Labels is also ISO9001 accredited which works perfectly with our customers’ standards.

Our pharmaceutical labels are manufactured to strict quality standards to ensure readability for even the smallest text and with our variable data abilities (link) to apply dates, serials or other required information can be manufactured.

Why are pharmaceutical labels so important?

Pharmaceutical labels have chemical compositions and are required by law to list all ingredients together with instructions for use and information about the supplying company.  Often pharmaceutical products have a best-before or a use-by date.  This information can either be printed onto the label, or can be manufactured to allow over-printing during the packaging processes.

Designs on pharmaceutical products vary in style, as products are tailored for both clinical and consumer use.  At CS, we’re highly experienced in delivering labels for pharmaceutical products for any application required.

What is the PS 9000 standard?

PS 9000:2016 is a standard detailing specific requirements and guidance for best practice relating to the manufacture of packaging materials for medicinal products, including orally inhaled and nasal drug products.
