Coding for Compliance Domino prepares you for ePedigree.
In November of 2013, the Federal government in the United States passed the Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA) to create a national pharmaceutical serialization and track & trace regulation. This mandates serialized coding on primary and secondary pharmaceutical packaging beginning in 2017, and supersedes all state mandates (including California e-pedigree). Global traceability initiatives, such as the DQSA, are designed to hinder the production and distribution of life-threatening imitation or counterfeit pharmaceuticals. These initiatives can require identification and authenticity features on primary, secondary and tertiary packaging levels typically in the form of unique, non-predictive, serialized and machine readable codes. This level of product identification aims to impair the ability of counterfeiters to successfully replicate pharmaceutical products and packaging.
