Igb Tamper Evident: the lean solution to the FMD

300.000.000 boxes sold in 2019

Igb Tamper Evident folding boxes do not change the packaging process of pharma companies.
They are a lean solution to the 2011/62/EU: they allow to keep working at the same speed as non-tamper evident boxes and achieve the same performance:

  • No gluing
  • No labelling
  • No additional space required in packaging department
  • No slow-downs to production line
  • No investments in additional packaging equipment
  • Easy solution to FMD - Falsified Medicines Directive, Dir. 2011/62/EU and FDA and TGA requirements
  • They irreversibly show if the box has been opened
  • They immediately allow a visual check and are blind friendly
  • They have a Tamper Evident seal built inside therefore it does not interfere with the Braille text, which, instead, can happen with other solutions that have perforations on the outside
  • Guarantee that graphics, texts and variable data keep intact and readable because they have no stickers that damage the cardboard when peeled off
  • They have been awarded by the most important trade shows in the industry
  • Environment friendly because entirely made of cardboard
  • Awarded by the major trade shows worldwide

Astuccio anti manomissioni per medicinali prodotto da IGB

From February 9th, 2019, pharmaceutical products in Europe require tamper evident cartons or tamper - resistant cartons.

Compliance with the Directive 2011/62 / EU IGB produce and sell tamper evident medical boxes Certified for Europe and USA

The new European FMD - Falsified Medicines Directive - Dir. 2011/62/EU states that “…outer packaging...” must provides “safety features enabling wholesale distributors and persons authorized or entitled to supply medicinal products to the public to verify the authenticity of the medicinal product and identify individual packs, as well as a device allowing verification of whether the outer packaging has been tampered with.”: a device, that could be removed to open the pack without detectable signs that it had been removed, would not fulfill the definition of anti-tampering device.

Since many years already, glue is not accepted as an anticounterfeiting solution for pharmaceutical cartons in US and Australia.

Since many years already, glue is not accepted as an anticounterfeiting solution for pharmaceutical cartons in US and Australia.

FDA: “Paperboard cartons sealed by gluing the end flaps are not capable of meeting the TRP requirements.”

TGA: “Sealed paperboard cartons as currently available in the marketplace (e.g., cartons sealed by gluing the end flaps together) are unacceptable”.

FDA regulates the use of seals as well. According to the US agency, standard seals do not meet TRP (tamper resistant packaging) requirements.

FDA: " Tape seals relying on an adhesive to bond them to the package are not capable of meeting the TRP requirements because they can be removed and reapplied with no visible evidence of entry. However, the Agency recognizes that technological innovations may produce adhesives which do not permit the removal and reapplication of tape seals. In addition, tape seals may contain a feature that makes it readily apparent if the seals have been removed and reapplied. Tape seals must employ an identifying characteristic that cannot be readily duplicated.”

As a result, to adhere to the high security protocols on tamper evidence, seals must have sophisticated anticounterfeits features that make them expensive compared to standard seals.

TGA: "Tape seals are acceptable only if they contain a unique feature that makes it apparent if the seals have been removed and reapplied, e.g., a permanent adhesive."

In conclusion, labels and glue add up costs and complexity on the production process of pharmaceutical tamper evident cartons.
