We smooth out your road to drug serialization compliance
Drug serialization is becoming a major challenge for the pharmaceutical industry as regulations are or will soon be in place in more than 40 countries. The deadlines for compliance with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) in the United States or the Falsified Medicines Directive 2011/62/EU (EU-FMD) in Europe are fast approaching. Whether you are a pharma company, a contract manufacturer (CMO) or contract packager (CPO), you will need to have a serialization and track & trace solution up and running by 2017 or 2019 for the US and the EU respectively.
By the end of the decade, 80% of global drug supply will be serialized. Thousands of sites and packaging lines will be impacted by legal and regulatory requirements. With fast approaching deadlines and to avoid to put your business at risk, you will need a serialization solution that is quickly and easily deployable at your sites and works seamlessly with your existing line equipment and your enterprise information systems.
Legal requirements for the serialization of pharmaceutical products can differ vastly from one country to another in terms of scope, coding format, incident reporting, data storage and exchange etc. they can change without notice. To be compliant with a range of different rules and regulations, you need a solution that is fully configurable, highly flexible and adaptable to the ever-changing legal landscape surrounding drugs and medicines.
Implementing new industrial processes across production plants and lines is always a delicate operation that can make lengthy change control necessary. To minimize downtimes, you need a centralized configuration and process management software at site level that also enables you to keep up-to-date with changing regulations easily and to ensure fast and seamless changeovers for all your packaging lines without compromising Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE).
Calculating the costs of serialization requires a holistic examination of the multiple elements impacting your implementation strategy. To avoid hidden costs related to software/hardware incompatibilities and change management, you need a standardized and highly scalable software solution deployed by a reliable and qualified system integrator.
