The DSCSA Allows Paper Documents Until Nov. 2017, What if Wholesalers Refuse to Accept Them?

The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) states pharmaceutical trading partners must include product transaction information in an electronic or paper record every time ownership is transferred starting January 1, 2015.  In November 2017, product transaction information in paper form will no longer be acceptable.  Many wholesale distributors are insisting on electronic records starting on January 1, 2015.  For large wholesalers, it is very difficult to deal with paper records because of the many possible places the product and the associated paper record could be.  While in the possession of a wholesaler, a product and paper record could be at a receiving facility or at one of many remote distribution centers.

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.
