Labeling Software for Every Industry and Regulation

Every industry faces its own evolving regulations and standard practices. And companies in every industry trust BarTender to help them meet those requirements with its ease of deployment and secure, configurable technology.

BarTender® Software for Chemical Labeling

Chemical manufacturers, distributors and importers struggle to keep up with an industry that is transforming at a breakneck pace, and with a growing collection of rules and regulations for the labeling and tracking of materials.

These rules include the UN’s Globally Harmonized System (GHS) which, despite its name, is neither global nor harmonized: Its standards are being interpreted and implemented individually by each UN member economy, leaving a patchwork of conflicting rules and deadlines for compliance. Violation of these regulations can carry significant fines and other penalties.

Geographical lines are blurring, but industry investors still expect secure, consistent business processes across borders. And customers are demanding increased focus on EHS&S throughout the supply chain.

BarTender® Software for Healthcare Labeling

Healthcare providers have a singular mandate to maintain patient safety.  But they also must balance regulatory requirements and, with healthcare operating margins averaging less than 3%, increased pressure for cost control.

Labeling and auto-identification methods, such as barcodes and RFID, can enable the data capture and sharing goals of eHealth and electronic record programs. These technologies provide the link between the patient and today’s EHR / EMR, helping healthcare practitioners and facilities meet meaningful use criteria, enabling regulatory compliance, and providing the systems interoperability that increases accuracy and efficiency in patient care and supply chain processes.

BarTender® Software for Medical Device Labeling and Marking

Global regulatory agencies such as the US FDA and the European Commission are enacting strict policies for the labeling and registration of every single piece of medical equipment, from simple tongue depressors to complex life-saving technologies.

With patient safety at the core of these unique device identification (UDI) regulations, there is no room for compromise: Even the smallest unintentional divergence from the rules carries potential penalties and irreparable damage to a company’s reputation and market share.

Medical device manufacturers require labeling solutions that are secure, proven and reliable; that integrate completely with existing systems and workflows; and that can scale and adapt to evolving business practices.

BarTender® Software for Pharmaceutical Labeling

Compliance with global regulations for the track and trace of prescription drugs, like the DSCSA provisions of the US FDA’s DQSA, and the EU’s Falsified Medicines Directive, presents a vast set of challenges for the pharmaceutical industry. While these serialization, e-pedigree and registration schemes have been mandated to provide consumer protections, building an integrated, interoperable supply chain while also staying abreast of evolving regulations requires a new approach to data management. As manufacturers implement their traceability programs, though, they’re also uncovering strategic value to their business: A well-deployed program can capture better visibility to the supply chain, reduce waste in procurement and warehousing, and streamline overall systems.

Labeling processes are crucial to serialization and e-pedigree program deployment.  Having the right labeling system in place — one that is secure, proven and reliable; that integrates completely with existing systems and workflows to enable single source of truth data management; and that scales and adapts to evolving business practices — can be the difference between a successful serialization initiative that creates efficiencies and a complicated one that creates costs.
