A translation has to follow the English or Swedish original, and has to be approved by Parmax prior to use.
Parmax’s products are in general labeled with LOT numbers, which allow the products to be traced in production and to customers, in case of product malfunction. The LOT number is placed on the packaging and has to be included in any return, claim or incident/accident, where the product is likely to have failed. It is required that our distributors have an integrated functional system to trace our products to the purchaser/end-user/patient, whoever is the next in the distribution chain. We also require that our distributors make this requirement to their distributors (if relevant).
