ECMA Pharma Forum
Over the more than 10 years of its lifetime, the Forum has covered a whole range of topics of specific relevance to the Pharma packaging sector:
- Good Manufacturing Practice
- Security and anti-counterfeiting
- Patient compliance
- Pharmaceutical industry and healthcare trends
- Board standardisation
- Braille standardisation
- Digital printing, etc.
The Pharma Forum was instrumental in creating a European Guideline for the application of Braille onto medicine packaging for the visually impaired. In the meantime this Guideline has been adopted as the basis for a CEN standard and progress is being made to also turn this into a global ISO standard.
The ECMA Pharma Forum is chaired by Roel van Eerd (Van Eerd, NL) and supported by Rogier Krabbendam (ECMA).
