Legislation is transforming the pharmaceutical supply chain to improve patient safety by requiring traceability of prescription drugs. End-to-end thinking is needed for successful implementation of serialization and track and trace technology. To meet the deadlines for interoperability, Johnson & Johnson Supply Chain (JJSC) is working with customers to implement and test GS1 Standards-based solutions in real-world pilots.

JJSC and AmerisourceBergen Corporation (ABC) recently collaborated on a pilot program testing a standards-based solution to meet the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) mandate requirements for 2017. GS1 barcodes were leveraged by customers to share information about the physical movement and status of products as they travel throughout the supply chain in a four-week pilot program in a live production setting.

JJSC also tested its end to-end serialization and verification process in Germany with a pilot focused on six products, produced in two manufacturing plants. Serialized Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs) encoded in barcodes were applied to packages, published in the European Hub, Europe’s centralized data distribution system, and then downloaded to securPharm, Germany’s national medicines verification system. As packages arrived in the 400 pharmacies that were part of the pilot, they were successfully authenticated via the European Medicines Verification System.
