TraceLink’s China Compliance application manages China’s track and trace regulations. China’s Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) generates serial numbers and assigns them to manufacturers. TraceLink serialization application owners import the serial numbers, and, using an encoding format unique to China, they apply the serial numbers to their products.
TraceLink’s China Compliance application monitors TraceLink’s applications for reportable events transacted on the serial numbers. The application generates and sends reports to the CFDA for:
- Serial number commissioning and aggregation events
- Product releases
- Sales shipments
- Serial number decommissioning and destruction events
- Receipts, returns, cancellations, and transfers
