The packaging and labeling of pharmaceutical products is an important part of the marketing project designed to get the drugs onto the market and benefit the consumer who needs them. With the incorrect packaging the drugs could be harmed by environmental factors, and the wrong labeling could result in the consumers passing over the product, or if the wrong information is on the label, it could lead to injury of the consumer. Thankfully there are packaging manufacturers who provide the equipment and materials to ensure the product is promoted successfully, and even more important, the labeling is correct for a drug product.

These packaging manufacturers can be found quite easily on the Internet search engines. All you have to do is provide the correct keywords, such as pharmaceutical provider directories packaging supplies; this will bring up an extensive list for your research. These manufacturing companies provide; pill packs, capsules, vials, rubber stoppers, plastic bags, tubes, poly bags, and bottles for the pharmaceutical industry.

A pharmaceutical drug company can also purchase their shipping supplies from the packaging manufacturer, such as; wrapping tape, packing Styrofoam, clear wrap, blister packs, hang tags, clam shell boxes, corrugated boxes, bubble wrap, and bag sealers.

These pharmaceutical packaging companies are under the authority of the FDA and must meet all their requirement standards in regard to safety, up to date equipment, and cleanliness. While many of these pharmaceutical packaging companies are large conglomerates, there are quite a few those remaining family owned, and operated; just as they have been for generations. These companies tend to offer more personal customer satisfaction because they have been dealing with the public and their needs for decades.

For proper packaging labeling, and to make it a standard format for all pharmaceutical manufacturers; the FDA instituted the Structured Product Labeling (SPL) system in 2005. This computer generated labeling system ensures all drugs of a type are labeled accordingly. This makes generating product labels that are easily read and understood by the consumer are available on every drug they purchase. The UK's version of the FDA, the European Agency for the Evaluation of Medical Products instituted the same requirements the following year. Once a drug is under the approval of the FDA, no changes in the labeling can occur without their approval.

With the advent of scanning registers all pharmaceutical packaging now contain barcodes. These bar codes contain all the information and more, that was once placed on the label itself. This makes for easy tracking of all pharmaceutical products.
