Counterfeiting of medications is a major problem faced by the global pharmaceutical industry. Owing to globalization, the supply chain for medicines has become lengthier with every step offering another opportunity for counterfeiters. Thus, global track and trace requirements have become stringent putting tremendous pressure on the supply chain’s transparency.
Pharmaceutical companies do believe that counterfeiting can be reduced significantly by implementing product serialization. Serialization requires a comprehensive system to track and trace the passage of prescription drugs through the entire supply chain. Therefore, serialization is often looked upon as an effort- and cost-intensive process.
ACG works closely with pharmaceutical companies across the globe as a track and trace implementation partner. ACG’s webinar on “Track and Trace Simplified: Demystifying L1 to L5 Implementation Strategies” aims at systematically decoding the Global and particularly DSCSA Track and Trace requirements and preparing for L1-L5 implementation process.
