DSCSA and Serialization Discussion on Tap at Barrier Pharma Packaging

October 14, 2014

TraceLink Inc., the leader in protecting patient safety and enabling health for global Life Sciences, announced today that industry thought leader Brian Daleiden, Vice President of Marketing at TraceLink will speak at the Barrier Pharma Packaging 2014 conference to educate manufacturing and packaging leaders on emerging US and global serialization and track and trace regulations that impact their supply planning. The meeting will take place on October 14-15, 2014.

“Between US DSCSA, China, Brazil, EU and other global track and trace compliance regulations coming into force, over 75% of the global pharmaceutical drug supply will be covered by one or more regulations by 2018,” said Daleiden. “Pharmaceutical companies and their CMO/CPO partners face significant challenges in dealing with the scale, scope and diversity of the serialization, traceability and reporting regulations. It clearly calls out the need to have a global supply strategy, a harmonized IT infrastructure and a highly coordinated strategy with global manufacturing and packaging resources that provides for the agility to adjust as these regulations continue to evolve.”

Brian will be joining a noted group of pharmaceutical industry leaders at the conference including Boehringer Ingelheim, GlaxoSmithKline and Bilcare in discussing the emerging challenges facing the global supply chain.
