MHRA: Braille on packaging for medicinal products

The British Standards Institute has recently published BS EN 15823:2010 Packaging. Braille on the packaging of medicinal products. This specifies the requirements and provides guidance for the application of Braille to the labelling of medicinal products. Where compliance with this standard has been shown, such packaging will meet the regulatory provisions in article 56(a) of Council Directive 2001/83/EC [as amended].
