Coordination and Preparation are the Keys to Serialization Success

By June 8, 2016March 16th, 2021Company News, DSCSA, Serialization

What is serialization preparation looking like at your organization? If you’re like most small- to mid-sized pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors, you are (or will be) relying on an internal team of people to get the job done. And most of those team members still have their regular jobs to tend to in addition to working on the implementation project. That may worry you, but it shouldn’t. Because I can tell you from experience that the difference between successful serialization implementation and troubled serialization implementation is less about time and more about knowledge.

Whether you’ve begun the process or not, that team probably has a lot of questions about how serialization implementation will impact your business, such as:

  • With so many moving parts, how can we be sure everything will fall into place by the deadline?
  • Will our CMO serialization meet distributor requirements?
  • What if the FDA delays the effective date, and how will that impact all of our other internal and external deadlines?
  • Will the unserialized inventory we manufacture prior to the deadline be accepted by distributors given the three-year expiration window?
  • Do we need EPCIS to manage serialized data and data communications?
  • If we outsource distribution to a 3PL, do we need an EDGE warehouse system?

Most businesses find that getting answers to these kinds of questions from resources inside the company is close to impossible. Which means it may be time to turn to a consultant.
