Expanded Content Labels (ECLs): The Ultimate Solution for Multilingual and Regulatory Information

In the fast-paced world of pharmaceuticals and healthcare, packaging plays a critical role in delivering crucial information to consumers and meeting regulatory requirements. With multilingual and additional regulatory information becoming the norm, traditional labels often fall short of providing sufficient space. This is where Expanded Content Labels (ECLs), also known as booklet labels, wrap-around labels, piggyback labels, and more, emerge as a cost-effective and versatile solution. 

1. The Pioneers of ECLs: CCL Healthcare

As a pioneer in the expanded content label space, CCL Healthcare has been at the forefront of innovation for decades, offering the largest selection of formats and configurations in the pharmaceutical and life sciences secondary packaging industry. Regardless of container shape, size, or material, CCL Healthcare can design and manufacture a custom ECL solution that fits like a glove. With countless configurations and value-added features available, CCL Healthcare sets the standard for ECL excellence. 

2. Unleashing the Power of ECLs

ECLs offer an abundance of benefits that go beyond regulatory compliance. They not only present large amounts of information to meet regulatory demands but also boast full graphics that capture consumers’ attention on retail shelves. Combining a booklet or leaflet with the label streamlines the packaging process, eliminating the need for other components, which ultimately increases productivity, lowers costs, and presents an environmentally sustainable solution. Moreover, ECLs can be dispensed on standard labeling equipment, eliminating the need for any re-tooling.
