Regulations for medical packaging sometimes differ from country to country and even from state to state. These regulations are necessary for keeping your product sealed before it reaches the consumer and keeping your consumer safe from contamination or an otherwise ineffective product. However, keeping track of all of the rules can be difficult, especially if you sell products to other states or countries, as you’re likely to do. If you don’t meet these requirements, though, your company could be hit with a fine or even have to cease production until you can fix the problem.
Hire the Experts
Medical package testing by a third, unbiased party is an essential part of avoiding any substandard packaging. Consult with the experts at TEN-E to learn how your packaging will be tested to make sure it meets all regulations. Areas on which we focus include the durability of the packaging as well as the temperature resistance and its ability to keep the product safe and unbroken during transit.
Knowing your products leave the factory in a strong, durable package isn’t enough when those packages have to be distributed across the country and perhaps even the globe. Focus on how distribution handles your items, including any extreme temperature exposure. Consult the experts for ways to spot potential problems in the distribution process.
Update the Packaging
Stay on top of changes in regulations and make updates to your medical packaging whenever appropriate. Schedule a routine packaging test, so the professionals can let you know if anything needs to be adjusted.
Work with TEN-E to ensure every medical product you send out is packaged to be in line with all possible regulations. In addition to testing your current and new designs, TEN-E can re-test packages on a regular basis — at least once a year — to make sure the quality in production has not dropped. Avoid fines and a disruption in production by paying bringing in the experts when it comes to medical packaging safety and effectiveness.
