DSCSA: Ready or Not ...here it comes! - On Demand

The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) outlines requirements for enhanced drug distribution security, which include the steps to achieve interoperable, electronic tracing of products at the package level.  The requirements for enhanced drug distribution security go into effect on November 27, 2023.  As we end the 10-year roll out of this new legislation, authorized trading partners are preparing for compliance without full interpretation of the guidelines.  This webinar will provide an overview of the new regulations as well as address ongoing concerns regarding data exchange, interoperability, and communication between regulators and trading partners.
