Starting November 27, 2023, the second phase of traceability requirements comes into effect, shifting from lot-level to package-level product tracing.
Despite limited statutory details, three crucial and interconnected components make up these DSCSA 2023 requirements: Interoperable Exchange, Verification, and Tracing. Trading partners will need to securely share transaction information (including product identifiers) and statements electronically, verify product identifiers on packages or sealed cases, and maintain digital systems to supply transaction details upon request, all in an interoperable manner to enable tracing back to the manufacturer.
Efficient implementation requires an intentional implementation plan that builds toward a shared vision for 2023 interoperability.
As an independent, balanced, and sector-neutral governance body, PDG is working to establish an implementation plan and will provide certainty and longevity that benefits the effective, efficient implementation of the DSCSA. Each trading partner will be committing significant resources to implementation of the DSCSA 2023 requirements. The formal structure of PDG, with well-understood, agreed upon rules for governance will provide confidence and predictability in the allocation of those resources.
