Counterfeit drugs account for approximately $75 billion in global annual losses. To address this, anti-counterfeiting measures, such as serialisation, are making packaging as important as the drug it is tasked with protecting. Serialisation is a means to track and trace products, and legislation is already enforced in countries like Brazil, South Korea and China. It is due to come into effect in the US in 2017 and in all European countries by Feb 2019 for all prescription drugs.
Serialisation systems must be configurable to meet the needs of the country in which the end product is to be distributed. In order for contract manufacturers, like Aesica, to be able to continue to serve their pharmaceutical customers, they must implement a serialisation capability that is able to deliver the required complexity and flexibly.
In this first webinar, Christian Gross, Packaging Technology Manager at Aesica, will discuss the industry’s preparedness for serialisation legislation and Aesica’s serialisation solution, from concept to delivery.
By attending this session, viewers will:
- Learn more about the serialisation requirements from different countries
- Learn how Aesica has addressed serialisation
- Have the opportunity for their questions and challenges to be addressed by an industry expert during the Q&A portion of the webinar
