  • Essential Steps to Complying with DSCSA Regulations, Brought to you by Hamacher Resource Group

    October 6, 2020

    Knowing that pharmacies are the last stop in the distribution supply chain before medicines reach patients, full compliance with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act regulations is an essential component of the system. The overarching purpose of DSCSA is to more efficiently ensure patient safety by preventing illegitimate or recalled drug products from entering the market. The logging and record maintenance of all pharmaceutical products’ change-of-ownership information must be transmitted and held. Additionally, for the first 10 years of legislative enactment, products will be tracked and traced to the lot level. After this initial 10-year period, products may be tracked down to the unit level. This webinar discusses the steps necessary for independent pharmacies to fulfill the requirements of the regulation and prepare for interoperability by 2023.
