Pakistan adopts drug barcode

Two D barcode has become mandatory in Pakistan for drug packs.

Back in February the Supreme Court had ordered the implementation of this new technology granting all concerned companies 3 months to implement all necessary measures to comply with the new obligation.

The barcode shall be included on the secondary packaging as well as on the immediate packaging (e.g. containers and bottles). This measure regards medicinal products for human use (including biologicals) as well as veterinary products.
