Braille-embossed cartons

New Braille-embossed cartons and labels comply with impending European Union legislation mandating that secondary drug packaging must have label information in Braille for sight-impaired customers. According to European Directive 2001/ 83/ EC Article 56A, pharmaceutical packaging will be required by law to have product names, formulation and strength displayed in Braille by October 2010. Using special tooling, the co. embosses in an uncontracted Braille system, which means the words are spelled out instead of in a contracted or chain system, in which one character can represent an entire word.

Cortegra, 800/242-4657.
