Overview

Companies looking for quality artwork and labeling require perfection, not just in terms of product technicalities, but also in terms of communicating the product usability to the end-user. Even a simple typo on the final artwork or artwork defects could cost an organization millions of dollars. There are several reasons why companies are unable to address this issue of artwork defects. Some of them include:

  • Lack of proficient proofreading/QC professionals, with Regulatory artwork background
  • Absence of electronic proofreading tools from the process
  • Limited knowledge on Regulatory requirements

In such scenarios, companies must bear with the consequences, if they fail to address the gross technical, contextual, and content-based artwork defects.

Artwork Proofreading – Critical Checks Performed

  • Check brand name consistency
  • Check active ingredient availability
  • Check the dosage displayed on all panels of a carton or folding box (In case of a leaflet, check dosage consistency in all repetitions)
  • Check if all annotations are carried out by the stakeholders
  • Check if the SAP/Supply Chain ID is visible in the artwork for future tracking
  • Check for Pharma code required for production line and ensure it is the correct one as per new change request
  • Check if the artwork is created as per the right technical drawing and if all the variable data required is catered to and aligned to specified production site
  • Check for colors and separations to make sure no additional color is added as any variation will lead artwork for non-compliance
