Demand for Unique Identification of Products Call for Investments

Serialisation, FMD (European Union Falsified Medicine
Directive), DSCSA (United States Drug Supply Chain Security
Act) and UDI (Unique Device Identification) are all regulations
that have been in the making for a long time, and will be
implemented in the very near future. A part of most of
the regulations is the demand for unique identification of
each product or device, making it possible to track and
trace the medicine from the pharmaceutical manufacturer
and all the way to the patient who picks up the medicine
from a pharmacy or hospital. Jens Heidemann Sørensen
and Ulla Laursen of LSS Labelling Systems visualise the
possibilities for marking and labelling solutions that meet
the legal requirements.
