Join FDAnews and track and trace expert Evren Ozkaya, Ph.D. on Dec. 15, 2015 to tackle the numerous issues and misconceptions surrounding new track and trace requirements.

The requirements for track-and-trace are relatively new, and new aspects of them are continually coming into force. As of May 1, 2015, the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) is fully enforced for manufacturers, wholesalers and repackagers, with many additional requirements (such as for pharmacies) going into effect at a later date.

Currently, manufacturers must incorporate product transaction data into a single document that is available, either electronically or on paper, each time ownership is transferred. This must include transaction data listing, lot-level information, a complete transaction history and a transaction statement, and must be maintained for six years afterwards.

By November 2017, that information must be available electronically, and the product identifier must be affixed or imprinted on the label at the product and case level. This lot-level serialization will present a major challenge for drug manufacturers, requiring extensive work at every point of their supply chain.

This extends to the global level: serialization requirements are in various stages of development in the EU and in its member nations, as well as in Turkey, India, China, Brazil, Argentina and Korea. The most recent change occurred in Brazil, where all pharmaceuticals must be serialized and tracked by Dec. 10, 2016.

If manufacturers are concerned about the new requirements they shouldn’t miss out on this opportunity to get detailed input from this acknowledged expert. In just 90 minutes, attendees will learn:

  • Deadlines for serialization and how the timeline must reflect them
  • Old technology vs. new: How the supply chain needs to transform for compliance
  • The biggest myths and misconceptions about track-and-trace
  • Thinking globally: Is the U.S. lagging behind the rest of the world?
