Does the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) Support Product Returns and Resales?

When a wholesaler receives inventory returns from a pharmacy for credit, a wholesaler can determine whether the product is still saleable.  As long as there is nothing wrong with the product, the wholesaler is able to resell the product.  But, wholesalers (starting in November 2017) must submit a request for verification from the manufacturer.

The USDM Life Sciences Track & Trace Solutions and Services team will help you assess, plan and execute the changes and enhancements necessary to meet these regulations. Our team of experts will assess your products, the markets where they are sold and determine an implementation strategy for the changes that need to be made. USDM’s assessment methodology is extensive and includes the labels and packaging, the management of identification changes to each product, the changes to PLM, ERP, EPCIS and packaging systems, changes to printing, vision inspection and warehouse/inventory management systems and interfaces to foreign medical agency databases for pharmaceutical tracking. Also, USDM experts ensure that all changes and enhancements are implemented under the governing GMP regulations, under change control and validated prior to release for production.
