2018 EU Falsified Medicines Directive?
So if you are a pharmaceutical manufacturer, distributor or pharmacy there will be a requirement to record, capture and share this information. To satisfy the regulatory authorities for the new directives will take a lot of effort, and if you don't have a system in the warehouse, a lot of paperwork.
Dexterity WMS already supports this functionality, including being able to configure the 2D barcodes to suit your business, smart scanning and validation on goods receiving through order pick & pack to despatch with a full traceability record for every single transaction, so that a complete audit trail is available for immediate inspection .
Dexterity WMS will also enable you to validate expiry dates, track and locate product recalls down to individual batch numbers and achieve all this with no more staff than you have now. 2018 seems like a lifetime away but the industry reports that most companies are already behind with their preparations to implement the EU directives. If you need to get ready, consider Dexterity WMS as part of your supply chain solution for the warehouse.
For businesses who already have the scanning and data capture capability in place, but may require the ability to print or re-print label to this specification, NiceLabel Control Centre Enterprise is the prefect product to enhance existing label printing systems.
NiceLabel Control Centre Enterprise ensures a centralised traceability and management layer for labelling, required in medical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, manufacturing and in several other industries. It ensures compliance with regulatory requirements or your company internal security and quality standards. For more information on Dexterity WMS or NiceLabel Control Centre Enterprise call the sales team at Barcode-IT for a full explanation of how you business can achieve full regulatory compliance without having to change the WMS or ERP system.
