Industry sources, however, indicated that the additional printing would result in a cost increase of 5-7% and that there would also be a little delay in batch production as a result of this extra step.

The unique product identification code, brand name, legal and generic names of the medication, name, and address of the manufacturer, batch number, date of manufacture, expiration date, and manufacturing license number will all be included in the QR code.
