Pharmacode is a bar code standard, used in the pharmaceutical industry as a packing control system. It is designed to be readable despite printing errors. Pharmacode is a directional bar code that can only be read in one direction. It can be printed in multiple colors as a check to ensure that the remainder of the packaging (which the pharmaceutical company must print to protect itself from legal liability) is correctly printed. The correct terminology for this is actually "Pharmaceutical Binary Code"
