Packaging and labeling are important components of commercial and clinical products

Packaging and labeling of commercial and clinical products are very important aspects to an organization involved in a business that relates to these products. While the packaging and labeling of commercial products is important, it is more so with clinical products, because these products play an important role in a clinical trial and also in the very life of a patient or subject.

Commercial products have their own value over time. The FDA has guidances for commercial pharmaceutical products. Subpart G of CFR 21, Vol 4 concerns itself with packaging and labeling control. In line with its guidances on many related topics, this section deals with requirements for how labeling and packaging have to be carried out. These are some of the FDA’s rules on this topic:

o  Written procedures that describe how the labeling and packaging materials are received, identified, stored, handled, sampled, examined and tested and followed

o  Rejection of labeling and packaging materials that do not meet specifications or fail to meet their purpose

o  Maintenance of records of packaging and labeling for each shipment

o  Putting proper labels for each pharmaceutical product that describes the ingredients, strength, dosage and expiry date clearly

o  Destruction of expired products

o  Cancellation of license for pharmaceutical commercial products that fail to meet these requirements

The role of packaging and labeling in clinical trial products

Given the importance of clinical trials, and considering another equally important factor –namely that they are conducted across the globe these days –the need for extreme stringency in the packing and labeling of clinical trials products can never be overstated. In the area of clinical trials, these are the most popular packages:

o  Blisters

o  Bottles

o  Pouches

o  Syringes

o  Tubes

Irrespective of which of these packaging forms one is dealing with; there are stringent regulations for how to handle the packaging and labeling of clinical trials products. These regulations require manufacturers to maintain patient-friendly packaging and maintain strict standards concerning the following activities:

o  Filling of the product

o  Assembling it

o  Sorting it

o  Ensuring stability and containment of the product
