11/2/17: GS1 Standards: Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) Certificate Course - IL

  • Date:Thursday, November 2, 2017 - 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. CT
  • Location:GS1 US Offices, 300 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 1400, Chicago, IL 60606

This one-day certificate course is designed for manufacturers, wholesale distributors, and healthcare providers preparing for DSCSA requirements. Phase 2 of DSCSA requires that pharmaceutical products be marked with a National Drug Code (NDC), serial number, lot number, and expiration date in both machine-readable and human-readable format. Attend this training to learn how GS1 Standards can help you to effectively implement DSCSA lot-level management, serialization, and item-level traceability requirements. 

Although the DSCSA law specifies 2023 as the year when serialized item traceability is required, many trading partners have already made significant investments in serializing product lines and implementing serialized item traceability systems.  And as more and more trading partners start to transition from lot-level management to serialized item traceability, it is reasonable to expect that the U.S. pharmaceutical industry will experience a mixed environment of lot-based and serialized item information throughout the 2016 - 2023 time frame.
