Avoiding product counterfeit by choosing the right equipment
In the light that the world is facing a persistent and increasing threat from counterfeit, misbranded, adulterated, or diverted prescription drugs, government leaders, politicians and executives from major pharmaceutical providers are driving efforts to develop methods to reliably track and trace prescription drugs.
Based on this growing threat, many countries have started to address vulnerabilities in the supply chain by enacting legislation which, among other things, requires a comprehensive system, most often referred to as serialisation or in the United States as e-pedigree (electronic pedigree).
This growing movement towards utilising serialisation to track drugs will inevitably lead to companies found to be receiving or sending unserialized drug shipments opening themselves up to fines, orders to discontinue operations or even criminal investigation.
METTLER TOLEDO has developed a guide that provides companies, in accordance with current or emerging serialisation legislation, critical information on making an implementation decision by:
• Summarizing the minimum requirements of a serialisation solution
• Outlining the complexity involved when implementing a serialisation solution
• Detailed questions that must be addressed when choosing a production line equipment supplier
Most pharmaceutical companies have already started to focus on implementing a serialisation strategy and defining their needs on trusted partners with production line serialisation solutions.
All pharmaceutical companies will be affected by serialisation regulations. It is not an option to "wait and see" it's imperative to be a leader in the industry.
The Garvens Principles of Checkweighing Guide serves as a definitive reference work providing an insight into all aspects of checkweighing from basic principles to implementation of a comprehensive programme.
An effective checkweighing programme can provide maximum protection for your customers and your brand, protection against product failure and recalls, help to comply with local Weights and Measures guidelines and reduce overall operating costs.
