Is Life Sciences Labeling Really That Complex?

The answer to that question in a word is yes, life sciences labeling is immeasurably complex. To provide you with an illustrative contrast based upon my decade of experience within the field of information security, life sciences labeling is a far more complex subject than an area such as Cyber-security technologies. If you think my previous statement is off-base, then keep reading. In addition to being exceptionally complex, labeling within the Life Sciences is also a mission critical function that is constantly changing as regulatory requirements are increasing exponentially around the world. Since the U.S. FDA considers the label to be part of the product, if products are not being properly labeled, those products must not be shipped. A product that is incorrectly labeled has the potential of causing injury or death. Labeling systems must also be extensible to accommodate new data in a flexible way as requirements will constantly continue to change.
