Introduction to Braille

for the medical field and pharmaceutical sector

What exactly is braille? Braille is a tactile writing system consisting of raised points that can be felt with the fingertips. Braille enables blind or visually impaired people to read and write.

Legal background for the use of braille in health services

The European Directive 2004/27/EC specifies that the packaging of medical and pharmaceutical products must print the name of the product in braille. Therefore, for companies in the medical field, there is no way around including braille on product packaging.

In addition, the standard provides instructions for how braille should be correctly applied to packaging. Therefore, the technical implementation of the EU directive is set to be harmonized with other worldwide regulations.
