Innovation in Device Packaging & Labelling

Medical device packaging plays an essential role in securing the sterility, integrity, and safety of medical equipment to make it to consumers without being damaged or compromised from the manufacturing facility to the end user. The gadget must be packaged properly to shield it from the elements, contaminants, and physical harm. In this regard, World BI arranges the conferences between the Delegates and sponsor companies to choose the right partner for your company. The following are important elements and things to think about while packing medical equipment/Devices:


  • The materials used in the production of medical device packaging should all be recognized and traceable.
  • The material should be Compatible with Plastics, non-toxic, and non-leaching to prevent from possible contamination. When you choose a proper company, make sure they provide you the right material for your application.


  • In medical device packaging durability matters, preserving the product from physical harm during its journey through the supply chain is one of the main purposes of packaging for medical devices.
  • User-friendly packaging is essential for healthcare professionals.
  • It should facilitate the safe and efficient retrieval of the devices.


  • Certain medical items could spend a considerable amount of time in storage or on shelves before being purchased and utilized. As long as, medical device packaging must be able to sustain its integrity for long-term use.
  • Make sure the medical device packaging business you engage with can satisfy your unique needs by having a conversation with them about their packaging service life.
  • At World BI, we provide different conferences to solve all the challenges that faced by both manufacturing and services companies.

Compliance Issue:

  • The packaging should have simple, easy-to-follow directions on how to operate the device correctly.
  • Particularly for the devices that are self-administered, patient-friendly designs and labels can improve adherence to recommended regimens.
  • This supports patient compliance issues that the general population faces.

Regulatory Bodies for Medical Devices & Packaging:

When it comes to medical device packaging design regulations, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) are the primary authorities you need to follow.

Safety information:

  • Implementation of safety information like caution, warnings, and possible hazards related to using the equipment.
  • Consumers must have this knowledge to recognize potential risks and take the necessary precautions.

Track & Trace method Serialization:

  • Enabling traceability across the supply chain through the use of tracking systems and serial numbers can help to ensure the authenticity of products and avoid counterfeiting.
  • Medical device post-market surveillance, or PMS, is the continuing procedures and actions taken by producers, regulators, and other interested parties to keep an eye on and assess the functionality and safety of medical devices after they are put on the market.
  • During this phase, it is imperative to identify and promptly address any potential hazards or difficulties related to the devices and to ensure that they continue to fulfill their intended purpose and regulatory requirements.
  • Adverse Event Reporting is customary for manufacturers to gather and examine data on incidents and adverse events pertaining to the usage of their medical equipment. Patient injuries, equipment malfunctions, and deaths are examples of adverse occurrences.
  • Communication with Regulatory Authorities are regarding any major problems, new dangers, or corrective measures about their equipment, manufacturers are required to keep lines of communication open with regulatory authorities.

Labelling of Medical Equipment:

One of the most important parts of the medical device regulations is the labelling of medical equipment. All written, printed, or graphic information that comes with medical equipment and is meant for the end user to utilize is included on the label. For both regulatory compliance and the safe and efficient use of medical equipment, proper labelling is crucial. The following are important elements of medical device labelling:

United States FDA:

  • Medical device labelling is governed by laws that are unique to many nations and areas. For example, under Title 21, Part 801 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States controls the labelling of medical devices.

Standards in the European Union:

  • Medical device labelling standards in the European Union are outlined in the Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) and the In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR).
  • Medical device labels usually provide details regarding the equipment's intended use, warnings, and precautions, instructions for usage, manufacturer information, and contraindications Information such as the device's lot number, serial number, expiration date, and storage guidelines may also be found on the label.

Multilingual Labelling:

  • Medical device labelling may need to be presented in different languages, depending on the intended market, in order to ensure that end users can comprehend and follow the instructions.
  • The UDI system helps track and identify devices throughout their lifecycle.

Global Impact in USA OR EU Union:

  • Global impact of the pharmaceutical industry in the United States and Europe is closely linked, and both regions follow comparable packaging guidelines for their goods.
  • The United States and Europe have an impact on about 60% of the packaging and labelling regulations for pharmaceutical devices worldwide.
  • Adherence to FDA and EMA standards is vital for international market access.
  • Their regulatory frameworks, market dominance, and technology breakthroughs set the tone for industry practices globally.
