New Requirement for Pharmacy Labels Begins April 1

Effective April 1, pharmacies must print patient-oriented prescription labels in a minimum 12-point sans serif font size (previously, a minimum 10-point font was required). The new requirement follows the Jan. 9 Board of Pharmacy rulemaking to amend Title 16 California Code of Regulations Section 1707.5. CHA encourages pharmacies to ensure their prescription container labels comply with the new font size requirement
