What is e-labelling?
e-labelling means electronic labelling. The IFU (lnstructions for use) for some of our products are provided as pdf files, available on our website. The IFU are no longer included in the product packaging.
In accordance with EU regulation (No. 207/2012), e-labelling is available for implantable medical devices and their accessories, which are intended for exclusive use by professional users, e.g. physicians, nurses and hospital staff. All other products are still accompanied by printed instructions for use.
lt's always up-to-date
E-labelling ensures that the user always has the latest version of the IFU.
Scanning the QR code on the product Label takes you directly to the IFU. Alternatively, you can enter the URL from the Label into your web browser. This way the IFU is available on your computer, mobile phone, or tablet. Unlike printed IFU, you can enlarge it for better readability.
E-labelling avoids unnecessary consumption of paper and protects natural resources.
How does it work?
Use your cell phone or tablet to scan the QR-code next to the e-labelling symbol on the product Label. Alternatively, you can enter the URL located underneath the QR-code into your web browser to access the IFU. Choose and download the IFU in your preferred language. Should you require a printed IFU, simply call us or send us an e-mail.
