Pharmaceutical Packaging Innovation





NVC innovation project Pharmaceutical Packaging Innovation

Packaging is the activity of temporarily integrating of an external function and a product to enable the use of the product. In healthcare, the product is the medicine and the user is not only the patient but also the healthcare professional.

In this project, NVC member companies study the trends in packaging for medicines and medical devices. Special attention is paid to:

□ Production and distribution of medicines, medical devices and (self-)tests

□ Medical devices and (co)devices: innovations and legislation on packaging, labels and additional information supplied

□ Design methods for easier opening of packages

□ Design methods for better understandable pictogrammes

□ Innovation and legislation on interactive on-pack and in-pack leaflet information in Europe (especially EMA) and USA (especially FDA)

□ Environment: application of the PUMA MANIFESTO, in particular for the Collect-Control (collection) and Backend (recycling, recovery) processes

□ Support to the Sustainable Ageing work area currently being developed by NVC

□ Conferences, exhibitions and other events in the field of packaging of medicines and medical devices

The next annual meeting of the NVC International Working Group Pharmaceutical Packaging Innovation will take place on 27 June 2025.
