Every drug used in hospitals must be clearly and precisely identified by health professional users. Applying Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) is the principal aim of pharmaceutical companies to assure patients safety. Even if these rules are compulsory, good manufacturing practices have to be correctly interpreted. Therefore, the Departement of Researchs and Developments of the « Pharmacie centrale des Hôpitaux de l’Assistance publique de Paris » organized a circuit of labels in order to respect the aims laid down by the GMP for good hospital preparations.
