Introduction to braille

for the medical and pharmaceutical sectors

What exactly is braille? Braille is a tactile writing system consisting of raised dots felt with the fingertips. Braille enables the blind and visually impaired to read and write.

Legal framework for the use of braille in the healthcare, medical, and pharmaceutical sectors

European Directive 2004/27/EC stipulates that the name and, if applicable, the dosage strength of medicinal products must appear in braille on their packaging. At the same time, manufacturers can use braille to ensure safe medical care for the visually impaired. Therefore, companies in the medical sector cannot circumvent including braille on product packaging.

In addition, the standard provides instructions for how braille should be correctly applied to packaging. The intention here is to ensure that the technical implementation of the EU directive is consistent with other worldwide regulations.
