Welcome back to the Loftware blog. Today we're discussing the potential issues surrounding regulatory compliance, and the importance of accurate labeling.

Recent years have seen a rise in medical device recalls, and a significant portion of the problem can be attributed to labeling mistakes.

When a medical device manufacturer makes a mistake of this type, it has no choice but to recall the items in question. The Food And Drug Administration has seen a spike in recalls over the past 10 years, with 15 percent due to labeling mistakes.

When new regulations come into effect, companies must ensure the rules are being followed accurately and before their deadlines, or else they run the risk of experiencing a costly and time-consuming recall - not to mention the safety issues.
