Some of the issues that need to be addressed are: the type of problem (counterfeiting, repackaging, diverting); mapping of geographical areas and distribution channels involved; suspected origins of fake drugs; existing levels of control over the supply chain; the type and amount of information that requires validation; and nature of inspection (in the field versus back office).
