Pictograms from the Positive list for medicine packages

The MEB makes the following set of pictograms, including the established accompanying text, available for use on the medicine packaging (see Annex 5 of MEB 6, 'Positive list of pictograms').

Using such a pictogram, in this case with important warnings for the user, a message can be conveyed in a compact way. In this way, the message becomes easy to recognise and also accessible to everyone. A pictogram helps people to better understand instructions and helps to ensure that these instructions are followed.
