TraceLink Inc., the world’s largest track and trace network for connecting the Life Sciences supply chain and eliminating counterfeit prescription drugs from the global marketplace, today announced the availability of its South Korea Compliance module—providing drug manufacturers and wholesale distributors with the ability to meet South Korea compliance and data management regulations in advance of the country’s July 1, 2016 enforcement deadline. TraceLink also announced that customers who are currently shipping drug products to South Korea have already used the module to successfully upload more than 600 compliance documents to the Korean Pharmaceutical Information Service Center (KPIS) system.

Unlike other solution providers that make lots of promises about what they hope to offer sometime in the future, TraceLink continues to lead the industry with proven solutions that life sciences companies can use today, in production, to minimize business risk and ensure that medicines reach patients anywhere in the world.”
