LEIBINGER JET3 prints the PPN Code.
EU Directive for the increase of counterfeit prevention of medicine – LEIBINGER JET3 complies with the printing provisions.
With the introduction of the Directive 2011/62/EU on June 8th, 2011, the EU has gone the next step towards the counterfeit prevention of medicine. Beside additional requirements during production this regulation, for medicine facing a counterfeit risk, requires a security mark printed on the outside
packaging. This feature enables all persons involved in the distribution chain (manufacturers, distributors, pharmacies and much more) to verify the authentici- ty of the medicine as well as to identify the individu- al packaging.
As part of the terms, dictating a conversation of this regulation in existing national law until early 2013, the European confederation agreed on implementing a new form of coding.
Under the project name „secure pharm" the intro- duction of the so-called PPN (Pharmacy Product Number) was decided. Using this PPN, which is allocated individually per packaging independent of the product and manufacturer, the authenticity of the product can be comprehended – from production, through intermediate trade to sell.
On the packages this new PPN number will be prin- ted as part of the new PPN code containing several information like batch numbers, best-before date
as well as data, depending on various other factors. The basis of the PPN is the PZN (pharmaceutical central number), which is in Germany already cus- tomary.
This EU Directive will require changes in many are- as. As a leading manufacturer of continuous inkjet printers for marking and coding we already offer a solution.
With the LEIBINGER JET3, manufacturers are able to comply with the new regulation. The LEIBINGER JET3 printer prints the new PPN code on packaging in usually high quality. The required data are trans- mitted to the printer through lists or via external text.
The function for printing the PPN Code is available in all JET3 standard softwares No.: ...14 and higher. Printers with older software versions can be updated for free.
