This one day certificate course is designed for manufacturers, wholesale distributors, and healthcare providers, as you prepare for the requirements of DSCSA. Phase 2 of DSCSA is just less than a year away in November 2017, which 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. The use of GS1 Identifiers, Application Identifiers, and Data Carriers barcodes are covered in this workshop. In the GS1 System, the GS1 Global Trade Item Number® (GTIN®) is used to represent the NDC. 

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.  We will review aspects of the Implementation Guideline which provides the basics on how to identify and mark products, as well as how to share change-of-ownership information at the lot-level, as well as the serialized item-level. You will learn information on how to manage in a mixed environment, and provide specific guidance on exception processing, and addition forward and reverse logistics events.
