Compliant self-labelling systems for the pharmaceutical industry

The pharmaceutical industry is governed by strict rules and regulations which extend to the way in which pharmaceutical products are labelled. As this sector comes under increased regulatory scrutiny, pharmaceutical labelling professionals take great care when choosing their equipment to ensure that it is fully compliant with the requirements of the relevant national authorities and legislation.
