DSCSA Updates: HDA Traceability, FDA Public Meeting, and More

By October 12, 2016March 2nd, 2021Company News, DSCSA, Serialization, Track and Trace

There’s an intense feeling in the pharma industry right now – a mix of anxiety, excitement, and just plain old busyness in the face the DSCSA serialization deadline, which is just over a year away.

Manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers are rushing to meet requirements while also trying to capture, understand, and incorporate all the news and information swirling around the business environment. We at LSPediA are no different: We have a lot to accomplish for our clients, a lot of learning to absorb, and some helpful news to share.

LSPediA to Present at the FDA Public Meeting, Friday, October 14

LSPediA is honored to announce that we will be giving a short presentation at the FDA’s public meeting taking place this Friday, October 14, in Silver Springs, Maryland. The FDA organized the event to provide pharmaceutical supply chain stakeholders a chance to share information about their experiences implementing product identification requirements and tracing at the product level.

Our presentation, “Scan-In, Scan-out, and Verify Serialized Drug Products for Supply Chain Data Integrity,” will describe our model for enabling serialized data collection at both receiving and shipping locations, and allowing for verification at return or on demand. If you can’t attend, we will be featuring highlights from the presentation in an upcoming blog post.

Join LSPediA at the 2016 HDA Traceability Seminar

While 2017’s serialization requirement is on the immediate horizon, an even bigger date lies just down the road beyond that: the DSCSA item-level traceability deadline of 2023. In response, the Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HAD) Traceability Seminar, taking place in Washington DC on November 9-11, is bringing together pharmaceutical supply chain colleagues, service providers, government regulators, and traceability experts for three days of conversation, networking, and presentations.
