Leading pharmaceutical outsourcing services provider PCI Pharma Services, in collaboration with Xytnek, Antares, and Healthcare Packaging magazine, will host a free educational Serialization Forum on September 28 at Sheraton Boston Hotel, 39 Dalton Street, Massachusetts.

With drug counterfeiting on the rise globally and regulatory deadlines fast approaching – including the advent of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) Serialization requirements in 2017 – the pharmaceutical supply chain will soon be at critical point to ensure patient safety. From drug manufacturers to distributors, all supply chain partners will need to make crucial decisions to upgrade their production lines in compliance with traceability deadlines.

PCI’s latest Serialization seminar will bring together some of the brightest minds in the industry to share their experience and best practices for executing an effective Serialization strategy. Ian Parsonage, Senior Director of Global Serialization at PCI will be discussing relevant areas including what to watch out for, and lessons learned, as well as global Serialization strategy development and implementation. He will be joined by Elliot Aubreu, Senior Vice President at Xyntek Inc. and Greg Cathcart, CEO at Excellis Health, who will present on emerging markets and domestic requirements – understanding and meeting evolving country regulations for global track and trace.

Attendees will also hear from key sector leaders during a pharmaceutical industry roundtable session, where implementing Serialization from the global pharmaceutical perspective will be discussed. A live demonstration will help audience members absorb further knowledge on Serialization.

The seminar forms part of PCI’s ongoing program of regional events discussing topics relating to optimizing clinical trial execution and commercial pharmaceutical supply. PCI has hosted similar Serialization seminar events in North Carolina and Chicago during 2016 as interest has grown in the pharmaceutical industry.

This latest event will highlight evolving industry regulations for the implementation of industry Serialization, particularly the imminent deadlines for compliance with the DSCSA in the United States, as well as European Union requirements and those of emerging markets including China, South Korea, Brazil, and others. The discussions will enforce the need for all manufacturers, distributors and all supply chain partners to upgrade their production lines in compliance with traceability deadlines.

Industry professionals from pharmaceutical and biotech companies affected by global Serialization requirements will benefit from attending the PCI Serialization Forum.
