DIN EN ISO 17351
Packaging - Braille on packaging for medicinal products (ISO 17351:2013); German version EN ISO 17351:2014

Title (German)

Verpackung - Blindenschrift auf Arzneimittelverpackungen (ISO 17351:2013); Deutsche Fassung EN ISO 17351:2014


The standard specifies requirements and provides guidance for the application of Braille to the labelling of medicinal products. Among other things, it supports the implementation of Braille on medicinal products available in the European Union (EU) and in the European Economic Area (EEA). This standard replaces DIN EN 15823:2010 without any alterations of content. The new edition ensures that there will exist only one standard on this subject worldwide. On the European level, Working Group CEN/TC 261/SC 5/WG 12 "Marking" is responsible for the works. The secretariat of this Working Group is held by the Packaging Standards Committee (NAVp) at DIN e. V. The work was accompanied by German Mirror Committee NA 115-01-03 AA "Markierung" ("Marking").
