ANTARES VISION GROUP HOSTING DSCSA 2023 ON-DEMAND WEBINAR SERIES
The 15-minute webinars are designed for all pharma stakeholders, including manufacturers, distributors, dispensers, and logistics providers
Antares Vision Group is hosting a series of monthly on-demand webinars about the U.S. Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). It will focus on the requirements the pharmaceutical industry must be prepared for by this year’s November 27 deadline and answer lingering questions about the law.
DSCSA 2023 On-Demand Webinar Series:
The 15-minute webinars are designed for all pharma stakeholders, including manufacturers, distributors, dispensers, and logistics providers. They are hosted by rfxcel Senior Vice President of Product and Strategy Herb Wong, our resident DSCSA guru. Herb led an FDA-approved Verification Router Service (VRS) pilot, has been integral to forming the EPCIS Center of Excellence and provides technical guidance to our customers in pharma and other industries.
- 1st WEBINAR
The first webinar is available now; you can access it here. Herb gives an update about the timeline for compliance, and answers frequently asked questions about the regulations and industry readiness and talks about the Antares Vision Group capabilities that help ensure companies can comply.
- 2nd WEBINAR
Based on viewer feedback from this session, our next webinar will address what Herb calls the four “cornerstones” of the DSCSA:
- Product identification (serialization): A unique product identifier (PI), such as a bar code, must be placed on certain prescription drug packages.
- Product tracing: Stakeholders must provide information about a drug and who handled it each time it is sold. This includes Transaction Information (TI) and Transaction Statement (TS). All information must be exchanged electronically via EPCIS.
- Verification: Stakeholders must verify PIs on packages or sealed homogenous cases and they must use the VRS to verify saleable returns.
- Authorized trading partners (ATPs): All supply chain actors must be ATPs and must verify the ATP status of all their partners.
- 3rd WEBINAR
The third webinar will focus on exception handling — the ability to handle discrepancies between a physical shipment and its electronic report.
