TraceLink to Host Webinars Following Recently Announced FDA Data Exchange Guidance for DSCSA Compliance

Online Sessions Will Review FDA Information and Offer Open Q&A With Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Companies in Final Weeks Before January 1, 2015 Deadline

WAKEFIELD, MA--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2014) -  TraceLink Inc., the leader in protecting patient safety and enabling health for global Life Sciences, today announced that it will host two webinars for pharmaceutical supply chain companies that do not yet have a solution for ensuring compliance under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), which takes effect on January 1, 2015. The informational sessions follow the recently announced FDA interoperable data exchange guidance provided on November 26, and will provide pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors with a clear overview of any final steps they must take to ensure they are ready to exchange compliant Transaction History (TH), Transaction Information (TI), and Transaction Statement (TS) documents with their trading partners under DSCSA. The company will also share details about how easy it is to connect to the TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud, the largest track and trace network serving more than 50,000 connected members of the pharmaceutical supply chain, and its innovative DSCSA in a Week implementation program. The webinars are scheduled for Tuesday, December 2 at 1:00pm EST and Tuesday, December 9 at 1:00pm EST.

"Our effort to help pharmaceutical companies meet the January 1, 2015 DSCSA deadline dates back to before DSCSA was signed into law -- and now that we're less than four weeks away, we're committed to helping anyone implement a cost-effective DSCSA plan," said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO of TraceLink. "With the largest track and trace network in the Life Sciences industry, over a decade of experience connecting supply chain companies of all sizes and technical capabilities -- and 14 of the top 20 global pharmaceutical companies as customers, we deeply understand the complex operational challenges associated with DSCSA regulations. This is how we've been able to ensure that TraceLink customers could ship commercial goods to the Big Three with DSCSA compliant documents well in advance of January 1 -- and it's why more Life Sciences companies choose TraceLink to meet DSCSA requirements than any other single alternative."

Specifically designed for pharmaceutical manufacturers, wholesalers, repackagers and dispensers, the TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud connects more than 50,000 trading partners to deliver end-to-end DSCSA compliance. With a single connection to the TraceLink network, new customers achieve compliance with all provisions of DSCSA regulations and interoperability.
