Whether you work in pharmaceutical logistics or as a full-time packaging professional, you’re well aware it’s “crunch time” for wholesale distributors, dispensers, and repackagers looking to meet supply chain security requirements with new interoperable data exchange standards under DSCSA. 

In this interactive webinar presented by Healthcare Packaging, you’ll have a unique opportunity to learn about new developments in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. Join Keren Sookne, Editorial Director of Healthcare Packaging, and Tracy Nasarenko, Senior Director of Community Engagement at GS1, as they discuss pharmaceutical traceability readiness for DSCSA regulations that will go into effect on Nov. 27, 2023. Both presenters have their fingers on the pulse of current GS1 standards adoption among manufacturers, as well as their trading partners. 

Ms. Nasarenko will also speak to drug manufacturer priorities in these last six to eight months, the benefits of EPCIS for global data exchange, and common EPCIS woes the industry is experiencing. She’ll also discuss what she wishes manufacturers and packagers knew along with advice for small and midsize manufacturers who aren’t completely ready.

Plus, gain insight into the challenges your team may face during our Q&A section.
  • How GS1’s EPCIS is used in meeting requirements
  • Tips for overcoming EPCIS challenges
  • Traceability Beyond 2023: What Nasarenko envisions for the 3-5 years after 2023
  • What manufacturers could set in motion now to be better prepared for the future-state
