Auto ID Solutions, a leading provider of bar code quality tools and information, today announced it is accepting registration for its 2nd annual Bar Code Quality Conference in Chicago, IL, November 12-15, 2007.
This conference was started last year and over the last 14 months has grown to include the training of nearly 250 people that are involved in the retail and pharmaceutical supply chains. Each annual seminar is held in a different city, last year it was in Minneapolis and this year it will be located in the Chicagoland area.

Open discussions between printers, manufacturers, drug companies, and retailers will be facilitated to explain supply chain requirements, why they are necessary, and how to comply with the requirements established by retailers, hospitals, the FDA, and GS1 (formally the Uniform Code Council).
