CLEARWATER, FL, September 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Datex Pharmaceutical Software now includes a suite of features which enables compliance of the new FDA regulation, the Drug Quality Security Act (DQSA). The FDA Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA) was signed into law in late 2013. Established to address threats to patient safety and security, the new federal law will improve the effectiveness of pharmaceutical product recalls and provide a single nationwide policy. DQSA affects operations throughout the supply chain including: pharmaceutical manufacturers, re-packagers, wholesale distributors, third party logistics providers and dispensers.
Key provisions of the new FDA DQSA regulation include requirements for product identification, tracing and verification. All drug products are required to be encoded with a unique product identifier that must be at the smallest saleable unit and must be able to be verified at the package level standardized numerical identifier. Affected pharmaceutical industry supply chain businesses will benefit from using state-of-the-art software to aid in product traceability, handling and storage.
