Webinar Tomorrow: What Dispensers Need to Know About the Drug Supply Chain Security Act

A Complimentary Webinar Presented by OFW Law’s Tish Pahl and the Food Marketing Institute

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

3:00 pm – 4:00 pm US/Eastern

Please join FMI on a webinar with Tish Pahl —Under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), beginning January 1, 2015, manufacturers, wholesaler drug distributors, and repackagers, must provide transaction data about prescription drugs each time the product is sold in the U.S. market.  Suppliers will begin providing this information to dispensers on January 1 and, beginning July 1, 2015, dispensers must be able to receive this transaction data from their suppliers for each prescription drug they purchase.  Transaction data will also have to be provided with drop shipments and for many prescription drug product returns to suppliers.

Additionally, beginning on January 1, 2015, all supply chain participants, including dispensers, must have systems and processes in place to be able to comply with new DSCSA requirements regarding suspect and illegitimate products.  Dispensers and other supply chain participants may only trade with authorized trading partners.

With the January 1 deadline fast approaching, many questions remain unanswered about how to implement the DSCSA.  Supply chain entities may be unaware of the DSCSA’s requirements or mistakenly believe that the law will not apply to them for many years.  Tish Pahl of OFW Law will be providing a webinar for FMI members to discuss what the DSCSA means for dispensers.  She will provide an overview of how and when the law applies to dispensers, and will discuss the latest implementation information available from FDA.  She will then be available to answer your DSCSA questions.

We look forward to your participation.
