NORTH READING, Mass., March 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TraceLink Inc., the World's Largest Track and Trace Network
The report highlights a massive gap in industry readiness for drug serialization, with only one-third of respondents stating that they are "very prepared" to comply with serialization deadlines in the U.S. and EU. The in-depth analysis also reports that not one survey respondent has completed all of the fundamental steps for serialization compliance.
Key Findings From the Global Drug Supply, Safety and Traceability Report Include:
"This year, serialization becomes a true reality for many pharmaceutical companies. As the leader in the market, we feel that TraceLink has a corporate responsibility to provide insight into the state of serialization as it stands today, by leveraging our unique ability to reach the entire supply chain, from end-to-end, through our 266,000+ trade partner network," said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO of TraceLink. "These survey results are startling. Despite goodwill efforts by industry and regulators to meet compliance on time, the industry is extremely behind in being ready for serialization. In 2018, as we reach the final hours of serialization in both the U.S. and EU, the industry-wide lag in full serialization implementations remains a concern and emphasizes the criticality of trade partner connectivity within the supply chain."
TraceLink partnered with independent research firm, Penn Schoen Berland, to conduct the survey and produce the report analysis.
