Packaging, labeling and “artwork” are crucial stages of a drug product lifecycle, as they are the main safety information sources for the end user. Any mislead in these processes may lead to product recalls. Hence, it is highly important for a manufacturer to contemplate all possible approaches to successfully implement them either in-house or by opting managed services i.e. to contract out. While some companies contract the complete artwork process, others prefer to keep it in-house for confidentiality reasons.
