DSCSA Certificate for Supplier

This one-day course will help you prepare for DSCSA by learning about how GS1 Standards can be applied for DSCSA serialization, lot-level management, and item-level traceability.

On November 27, 2017, pharmaceutical manufacturers faced an important deadline: compliance with Phase 2 of the 2013 DSCSA. Although the U.S. FDA recently issued guidance* indicating that it will delay enforcement of those requirements until November 2018, the implementation deadline remains in effect.

This certificate training is designed for pharmaceutical manufacturers, wholesale distributors, and repackagers using GS1 Standards for the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).

The DSCSA** can be viewed as a three-phase implementation over 10 years. Phase 1 involves supply chain participants sharing lot-level, chain-of-ownership data starting in 2015. Phase 2 involves item-level identification and marking starting in 2017. And Phase 3 involves the electronic exchange of chain-of-ownership data to support serialized item traceability back to the product origin starting in 2023.

The course is intended to educate you on implementing business processes to help support supply chain in meeting the DSCSA by using GS1 Standards to track and trace products at the product and case level. This course will introduce and explain key practices used to promote DSCSA, product-level traceability, and provide guidance about how these best practices can be implemented by your company, and trading partners.  

What You’ll Learn: 

  • DSCSA overview and key milestones
  • The GS1 System of Standards and how it relates to DSCSA
  • How to obtain a GS1 Company Prefix that incorporates your NDC* Labeler Code

  • How to use Electronic Product Code Information Services (EPCIS) for DSCSA data exchange
