Starting January 1st 2015, the US Pharma industries need to have their production and products serialized at an item level to facilitate Track & Trace the pharma products in order to avoid drug Counterfeiting which has become a global issue. Wise Men can help those Pharmaceutical companies who run their ERP on SAP to meet this new legislation.
This blog looks into the details of this new bill and the mandates as far as tracking and tracing of finished goods are concerned.
The bill contains “THREE” main provisions for pharmaceutical manufacturers:
- Capturing transactions on a lot level (2015)
- Serializing items on a package level and capturing the data in electronic format (2017)
- Serializing items on a package level and capturing the data including aggregating data in an electronic format which is fully inter-operable (2023)
Wise Men has prepared a Rapid Deployment Solution (RDS) to meet these new legislative requirements and the demo on the solution will be shortly available at “Wise Men SAP Serialization Solution for Pharma Industries”.
