The Drug Supply Chain Security Act continues challenging all U.S. pharmaceutical manufacturers in becoming serialization and data management experts.
These, and similar global regulations, demand error-free identification and tracking of products throughout the entire pharmaceutical supply chain. As a result, billions of item transactions will be created, which must be traceable through secure and auditable data.
In partnership with pharmaceutical industry experts, Bell and Howell is hosting a one-day forum to explore the new requirements and responsibilities on Nov. 17. Attendees of the Southeast Traceability and Serialization Forum are scheduled to spend time with industry experts, while receiving a comprehensive overview of the DSCSA's scope, deadlines and requirements.
Far from being a simple production line and device-level installation, a future-proof serialization solution impacts nearly every area of a pharmaceutical business.
We recognize this. So with that in mind, we packed the event with content focused on best practices and lessons learned thus far. Attendees will be treated to panel discussions about implementation, integration and the full supply chain's evolving demands which challenge existing serialization line solutions.
In addition, “attendees will get to witness a live serialized production line at this forum,” said Steve Robinson, Bell and Howell’s Business Development Director. “What better way than to learn about what’s missing from today’s existing serialization line installations?”
Bell and Howell’s entry into this space is the PharmaFactory solution, which uses our proven iQ and JETVision technologies to track and trace items through their supply chain. Starting from the serialization of a single unit, through bundling, case packing, palletizing and aggregation and de-aggregation in the warehouse, the PharmaFactory solution ensures reliable and transferable product history data.
Co-sponsors for this event include Omega Design Corporation, 3C! Packaging and Excellis Health Solutions. Learn more about the Southeast Traceability and Serialization Forum.
