Does the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) Require a Data Matrix on the Drug Package and the Product Label?

Grant Hodgkins, Vice President of Track and Trace Services and Solutions at USDM Life Sciences says it’s unclear how this is going to work with the barcode rule intact.  At the moment, if you have a drug package that is two levels (for example, a blister pack going inside a carton dispensed at a pharmacy), the linear would continue to go on the carton as well as a data matrix.  Hodgkins says there are all kinds of variances for this particular situation and the FDA will need to clarify the requirement for this type of situation.

USDM Life Sciences offers healthcare a comprehensive assessment, strategy and solutions to implement end to end traceability of pharmaceutical and medical devices from point of receipt through to the electronic health record.
