Tracy Nasarenko
Senior Director of Community Engagement, Healthcare


66 Days to the final DSCSA deadline, November 27th of this year. In 2013, the United States Congress passed the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), to create a framework for governing the identification, management, and traceability of drug distribution within the United States. The objective of this law is to ensure patient safety by preventing illegitimate, counterfeit or recalled drug products from reaching patients. What is your organization’s role and are you ready for this final deadline—serialized unit-level traceability in an interoperable manner? Learn what the basic requirements are, what GS1 standards are being utilized by industry, and what resources are available to industry in meeting this new regulatory requirement.
