The Importance of Product Master Data

By November 2019, wholesale distributors will be required to verify the serialised product identifiers for any saleable products that have been returned to them before they can be restocked and resold. With this new saleable returns verification requirement, the challenges of master data exchange for manufacturers will come to the fore.

To manage the scope, scale, and challenges of the saleable returns requirement, wholesalers and manufacturers must re-evaluate their current methods of exchanging product master data information.

The Scale of the Challenge

The national organisation representing primary wholesale distributors in the US, the Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA), executed analysis of saleable returns. This showed that approximately 60 million units of drug product are returned annually, with the majority of saleable returns caused by overstocking (1).

Backward Thinking: The Reverse Engineering of A Pressurized Metered Dose Inhaler

Development of a generic equivalent to a current marketed pressurized metered dose inhaler (pMDI) product brings immense challenges. Thorough analysis is critical to gain a comprehensive understanding of the physical attributes and pharmaceutical performance of the reference marketed product. Many factors need to be assessed, understood and combined in order to successfully develop a generic pMDI which will meet the regulatory and quality requirements as an equivalent product in the anticipated target market. Significant information about the reference marketed product can be obtained from a thorough review of published literature, specifically the Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC) and Patient Information Leaflet (PIL). Additionally, baselining the reference marketed product for pharmaceutical performance offers a working target specification for in-vitro correlation. It will ensure the smoothest possible path to commercialization and maximize return on investment. In addition, baselining of the reference marketed product is done to understand batch-to-batch variability and product performance over the stated shelf life to establish targets for critical quality attributes (CQAs), which can be applied to the generic equivalent pMDI.
