What is Security Labelling?

Security labelling involves using particular labels or tags that indicate if a package or product has been tampered with or is authentic. These labels are designed to deter tampering and detect any unauthorised access to your products or packages.

Benefits of Security Labelling

Implementing security labelling can benefit your business in many ways. First, it helps prevent theft and tampering, which can lead to financial loss and damage to your reputation. Additionally, security labelling can improve customer trust in your brand and enhance the security of the supply chain.

Common Types of Security Labels

Tamper-evident labels

These labels are designed to show signs of tampering if the label has been removed or altered. They can include features such as destructible materials, adhesive residue, or printed patterns that are broken when the label is removed.

Holographic labels

These labels feature a hologram design that is difficult to replicate, making them highly secure. They can include features such as 2D/3D images, micro-text and hidden images that can only be seen under specific lighting conditions.

Watermark labels

These labels contain a hidden watermark that is only visible when the label is viewed under a specific light source or using a special tool.

Void labels

These labels feature a pattern or text that is revealed when the label is removed, indicating that the label has been tampered with.

Microprinted labels

These labels feature security lettering using 1pt and is therefore not visible to the naked eye. Microtext is used commonly to prevent counterfeiting.

Government regulations and industry standards for security labelling

There are various government regulations and industry standards to consider in the UK around security labelling. These include, but are not limited to:

  • The Sale of Goods Act 1979
  • The Consumer Protection Act 1987
  • The Cosmetic Products Enforcement Regulations 2013
  • The General Product Safety Regulations 2005

Familiarising yourself with these regulations and standards can help ensure that your security labelling program complies.
