The EU directives 2011/62/EU and EN 16679 also known as the “Falsified Medicines Directive” ask for security features for certain medicines to verify “authenticity and identification of individual packaging”, and “a device allowing verification of whether the outer packaging has been tampered with”. This means in future each packaging needs individual serialized codes, so partners of the supply chain can verify the packaging and ensure that any illicit opening is immediately apparent.
Our Gluing System (Tamper evidence solution) ensures that any illicit opening is immediately apparent. Different methods have become established in field use for reliably indicating the initial opening of folding boxes. Gluing the flaps of the box using glue dots is the most economical solution. Depending on your requirements and standards hot melt is recommended.
