The DSCSA regulations require supply chain partners to share unit-level product data electronically in a secure, interoperable manner. This data includes detailed transaction information and product identifiers, which include a unique serial number. Right now, EPCIS — Electronic Product Code Information Services — is the most widely recognized international standard that will allow stakeholders to meet these requirements.
“The EPCIS COE is an industry-wide undertaking that relies on the knowledge and expertise of every member – rfxcel CEO Glenn Abood said –. The serialization deadline is just two years away, and rfxcel is excited to announce the COE and to be working with our peers to ensure the success of the DSCSA by meeting the requirements for accurate, high-quality data”.
rfxcel, which first introduced the COE at a Healthcare Distribution Alliance Quarterly Update on September 27, will provide regular updates about the group’s activities and progress on its website.
