New Multi-Tear Closure Label from Schreiner MediPharm: Double Tamper Protection for Pharmaceutical Packaging

Schreiner MediPharm is offering a new sealing solution for tamper-proof closure of folding boxes and wallets. The Multi-Tear Closure Label is provided with a special combination of security effects that prevents undetected opening of pharmaceutical packaging. Thus, it satisfies the requirements of the EU Falsified Medicines Directive and the international ISO 21976:2018 standard, “Tamper Verification Features for Medicinal Product Packaging,” that is based on the European DIN EN 16679:2014.

The Multi-Tear Closure Label is a transparent closure seal for folding boxes and wallets that combines two security mechanisms. They are activated in an attempt to unnoticeably peel off the seal: The “film-tear” effect destroys the film and the “fiber-tear” effect causes the cardboard surface to tear. The seal is coated with a special high-strength adhesive. When the label is peeled off paper fibers are torn from the cardboard surface to which the label is applied. In addition, specially arranged security kiss cuts prevent the label from being removed as a whole: It will tear and thus be irreversibly destroyed. As a result, the fiber-/film-tear combination of the Multi-Tear Closure Label prevents undetected opening of medicine packaging because it clearly indicates any first opening.

Schreiner MediPharm’s Multi-Tear Closure Label works on many different cardboard surfaces, as well as on varnished cardboard boxes. Due to the transparent material, neither logos or design elements nor overprinted variable data such as batch numbers and expiration dates are covered. Sealed in this way, folding boxes and wallets comply with the requirements of the EU Falsified Medicines Directive, as well as with current DIN and other standards for tamper-proof pharmaceutical packaging.
