The Healthcare Compliance
Packaging Council

Welcome to the
Healthcare Compliance
Packaging Council

The Healthcare Compliance Packaging Council (HCPC) is a not-for-profit trade association that was established in 1990 to promote the many benefits of unit dose packaging -- especially the fact that these formats can be designed with compliance-prompting features proven to help people take their medications properly.
