TraceLink Leads Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) and Serialization Compliance Discussion at Pharmaceutical Traceability Forum

NORTH READING, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2015) - TraceLink Inc., the leader in protecting patient safety and enabling health for global Life Sciences, announced today that Brian Daleiden, TraceLink's Vice President of Industry Marketing, will speak on the US Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) and serialization preparedness at the Pharmaceutical Traceability Forum taking place March 30 - April 1, 2015 in Boston, Massachusetts. Attendees can also visit TraceLink in booth #1.

Global track and trace regulations incorporating the serialization, traceability and verification of pharmaceuticals will impact over 75 percent of the global drug supply by the end of 2018. Serialization and traceability readiness is now a strategic business requirement touching the entire organization and external supply network.

For organizations just starting down the serialization path, it is crucial to have a clear understanding of the underlying core issues and key trends that drive track and trace decision-making processes for pharmaceutical companies, their external supply network and their distribution trade ecosystem. The reality is that time is short to get started.

In his session entitled "Preparing for US DSCSA Serialization Deployment Using Key Learnings from Global Serialization and Trace and Trace Commercial Programs", conference participants will hear Mr. Daleiden provide a detailed overview of:

  • The diversity of serialization requirements to consider and questions to ask
  • How multi-national track and trace regulations impact US serialization planning
  • Key learnings from global serialization implementations that inform business and IT decisions
  • The crucial operational, supply chain and IT issues that companies need to consider in crafting a US serialization program
  • A model for putting together a realistic US DSCSA serialization deployment timeline for your company
