Whether you’re getting your first FDA approval, choosing a CPO or tackling the global market, compliance requirements impact every company—regardless of your business model.

You know you need to serialize to comply with government mandates such as DSCSA or EU FMD. But the journey from initially Googling “traceability” to achieving full serialization compliance is complex.
Let us guide you through the challenges and outcomes with two pharmaceutical companies who have successfully navigated the path to compliance for their different businesses.

Join Joe Lipari, Director - Global Traceability from Systech, as we map out a proven route to serialization success along with Steve Kane, Head of Product Integrity Program Global IT for Shire and Ann Schaefer, Director - Supply Chain Management at Acorda Therapeutics.

The panel will discuss:
• Complexity of the regulations
• Hurdles they overcame
• Solutions that carried them over the finish line
