Fifteen years ago the FDA set out to control cGMP labeling (Current Good Manufacturing Practice). The FDA first began its efforts to fix cGMP labeling in 1993 and eventually proposed a rule in 1997. The goal of its current final rule is to narrow the scope of its revisions made to cGMPs for cut and gang-printed labeling. It is believed that these two forms of labeling led to several drug recalls in the early 1990s. Another addition to the rule is to add a fourth control procedure which allows manufacturers to use any automated technique that physically prevents incorrect labeling.
