The pharmaceutical sector is facing its greatest challenge to date; how to reduce the number of counterfeit and falsified medicines entering the legitimate supply chain. Practically this means that pharmaceutical manufacturers will be required to comply with different legislation depending on the markets in which its products are sold. The theme common amongst both current and emerging legislation is a move to item level identification and an increased focus on the products data record. Unique, non-predictive serial numbers will be applied to product in the form of a code containing machine and human readable elements.
Legislation aimed at ensuring product integrity is now forthcoming in many markets including South Korea, Brazil, Russia and the Middle-East. Domino is the coding partner of choice for serialisation and track and trace projects currently being undertaken around the globe.
