Considerations for Pharmaceutical Labels

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has strict guidelines regarding the proper design of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical labels. Although the requirements and restrictions may vary slightly depending on the product, they generally focus on the following:


Pharmaceutical and nutraceutical product labels contain vital information for the consumer, they must remain in place and legible throughout the entire lifespan of the product. For these reasons, the labels are designed and constructed to withstand the stresses commonly experienced during distribution and storage.


FDA regulations state pharmaceutical labels must utilize a font of an appropriate type and size to ensure legibility. Additionally, the language and organization should be chosen with accuracy and readability in mind. Many companies such as yours may have in-house procedures or a legal department to review before submitting artwork to Labels Unlimited Company.


When it comes to material choices, regulations for pharmaceutical labels are less stringent than for pharmaceutical packaging. However, a general rule is choosing materials that are low migration to avoid product contamination.
