Is everybody ready to handle the DSCSA Verification Requirements going into effect next week? Despite the FDA enforcement delay on the requirement to verify saleable returned product, wholesale distributors are still responsible to deliver against sections 582 (c)(4)(A), 582 (c)(4)(B), and 582 (c)(4)(C). The four sections and their enforcement status are summarized in the table below.
